Luling – KPRC 2 Investigates has learned about a search connected to the more than yearlong disappearance for Texas State student Jason Landry. Landry is from the Houston area.
Saturday, a search team was in Caldwell County, just northeast of the location where Landry’s car was found abandoned. They were called in to assist the Sheriff’s office in the case.
”TEXSAR was out searching at the request of Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office,” said Capt. Jeff Ferry, with CCSO. He added, “We had this search planned for weeks, it’s part of our ongoing investigation.”
A TEXSAR representative told KPRC2 Investigates that the search was only scheduled for one day.
What happened to Jason Landry?
The Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office said Jason Landry, 21, was heading to the Missouri City area in December of 2020. Investigators found his crashed vehicle, a Nissan Altima, near Luling off Salt Flat Road with some of his belongings scattered nearby.
Texas Search and Rescue (TEXSAR) has been involved in search efforts, but had since then suspended its search. Landry’s family and friends had offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts and return.
There are no indications of foul play and no evidence to support that Landry was the victim of a crime, according to Ferry.
