Bastrop County Search
On Wednesday, August 27th, 2014, at the request of the Texas Rangers and in concert with Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office, several TEXSAR members deployed to assist the in the search for a woman missing since August 5th. While preparing to deploy ground search and K9 assets, TEXSAR’s air search assets began the search for the missing woman.
After an approximate one hour search via TEXSAR helicopter, a person’s remains were located in dense brush just north of Bastrop. With no other assets available, the TEXSAR helicopter landed at the scene and the flight crew secured the scene and relayed the female victim’s coordinates to the Texas Rangers. TEXSAR personnel remained at the scene until it was secured by the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office. A positive identification has not been made at this time.
TEXSAR would like to thank the Texas Rangers and Bastrop County Sheriff’s office for their efforts in this challenging search. TEXSAR would also like to extend our most sincere condolences to the family.
