UPDATE 3: Texas Task Force One joins the search for missing person in Clear Creek
UPDATE 3: Fort Hood emergency services officials deployed additional 89th Military Police Brigade Soldiers and Texas Task Force One search and rescue teams with their search dogs at first light April 12. The groups are conducting a thorough search based on a deliberate search pattern as derived from an analysis of topography and meteorological conditions. Two AH-64 Apache Helicopters were immediately deployed and also continue to search from the air. Emergency crews have prepositioned a UH-60 Blackhawk medical evacuation helicopter at the staging area ready to respond if the individual is located.
“I want to personally thank the more than 80 emergency responders, including Task Force One search and rescue teams, who have worked tirelessly to support this critical, ongoing effort,” said Col. Todd Fox, U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hood commander. “We’re doing everything we can to locate the driver and we are very appreciative of the assistance offered and rendered by our Central Texas neighbors.”
All tactical low-water crossings remain closed. Old Georgetown Road remains closed at Henson Creek.
