Wylie Search – October 18, 2014
On October 18, 2014, at the request of the Wylie, Texas Police Department, TEXSAR was called to conduct a search for a missing Wylie-area nurse’s aid who was discovered missing after she did not appear at work. The search area was a three mile route she normally took between her home and work. After weeks of searching by local police and fire units, the TEXSAR Austin and Dallas Teams were called in and conducted a wide area land search. The ground and K9 teams discovered no evidence or scents and all teams were released. About a month after the individual was reported missing the family hired a private firm to conduct a search of a local pond which was not part of the original search area. The private search team used a drone boat equipped with side-scan sonar discovered her van and remains submerged in an area pond.
TEXSAR would like to thank the Wylie Police Department and expresses its condolences to the family.
