Search for missing Houston woman resumes in Romayor

By Vanesa Brashier,

Authorities believe they have found the vehicle of a missing Houston woman in the Trinity River about 100 feet south of the river bridge on FM 787 near Romayor.

The vehicle is submerged in about 30 feet of water near the southwest side of the bridge.

Divers with Texas EquuSearch confirmed the location of the vehicle, which was located by sonar Sunday morning.

The missing woman, 48-year-old Jennifer Ann Scott-Perkins, left her home in Houston on Jan. 2, 2019, and has not been seen since she left a friend’s house in Shepherd, Texas, very shortly thereafter.

The last known location of Perkins was when she made several phone calls from the area of SH 146 and FM 787 near Rye, Texas, in far north Liberty County shortly after leaving her friend’s home.

At this time, authorities are awaiting a crane to lift the vehicle from the river.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
