Officials said a Fort Hood constable was reported missing because she had not come to the base for work.
The Fort Hood Directorate of Emergency Services said on Saturday that Jennifer Sewell, a private first-class constable, was seen leaving her on-post barracks at around 4 p.m. Thursday.
Officials said she was believed to have left of her own free will, but failed to report to work and did not return calls from her family, senior officials or law enforcement.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the military police.
“Military officers are in constant contact with Sewell’s unit, his family and close friends to ensure his health and safety,” officials said.
The base has been plagued by tragic disappearances and deaths over the years, including the high-profile case of missing soldier Vanessa Guillen, who was stabbed to death in June 2020.
An independent review of the Texas base – prompted by the deaths of more than two dozen soldiers there in the same year – concluded that military leaders were not adequately dealing with high rates of sexual assault and harassment, drug use and other issues.
