Deputy Jessica Hollis Search

Early in the morning on September 18 Senior Deputy Jessica Hollis of the Travis County Sheriff’s Office went missing in a flooded creek near Mansfield Dam.  Over the next two days, members from over a dozen different agencies searched by ground, water, and air to find this missing deputy until the fallen deputy was located and recovered from Lake Austin.

TEXSAR was honored to be one of the agencies called to participate in this search that leveraged every capability and every ounce of physical, mental, and emotional strength our members could contribute.   Members from the TEXSAR K9, Ground Search, Swiftwater, and Aerial units worked tirelessly alongside the other agencies in one of the largest search efforts Travis County has ever seen.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hollis family and to our many law enforcement partners throughout Central Texas.
