Texas National Guard Soldier Missing



AUSTIN, Texas (April 22, 2022) – The search for our missing National Guard Soldier continues. The Texas Rangers have taken the lead on investigating the incident, and we are thankful for their support as well as the continued support of the Texas Department of Public Safety, Parks and Wildlife and the Border Patrol.

Unfortunately, the strength of the river’s current has forced the Search and Rescue Teams to cease dive operations. We are hopeful that they will resume tomorrow. We will continue the search for our Soldier until we have exhausted all possible resources. We are in the process of notifying the next of kin regarding the missing Soldier.

The Texas Military Department will continue to provide official statements as additional information becomes available.





The mission of the Texas Military Department (TMD) is to provide the Governor and the President with ready and trained forces in support of the citizens of Texas and State and Federal civil/military authorities at home and abroad.

The Texas Military Department is commanded by the Adjutant General of Texas, the state's senior military official appointed by the governor, and is comprised of the Office of State Administration (formerly the Office of the Executive Director), the Texas Army National Guard (TXARNG), the Texas Air National Guard (TXANG) and the Texas State Guard (TXSG).
