A search is under way Saturday for a missing Harris County woman who was last seen Jan. 2. Her cell phone reportedly pinged to a cell phone tower in the Rye area in north Liberty County.
On Saturday, Jan. 26, search parties with Texas Equusearch and the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office are searching an area near the Trinity River on FM 787.
“Due to the flood washing out the banks of the Trinity River and lack of a boat launching facility, a crane lowered the Texas EquuSearch boat into the river,” said Sheriff’s Capt. Ken DeFoor. “Boat searchers are using side-scan sonar now and are crisscrossing the river in hopes of locating vehicle.”
The captain stressed that there is no specific information that the vehicle may be in this location. They are searching in an effort to eliminate some locations.
They are also conducting ATV and aircraft searches.
