Student goes missing on drive home for Christmas break; car, phone, wallet found abandoned: Report

Authorities in Texas are searching for a missing college student whose car was found abandoned.

As reports, Jason Landry, 21, left the Texas State campus in San Marcos on Sunday to drive home to Missouri City, less than three hours away by car, for the holidays.

Landry never arrived, and on Sunday night, a passerby spotted his car along Salt Flat Road in or near Luling. The vehicle was totaled, and Landry’s possessions–including his phone and wallet–were left behind in the car, which was found about 30 minutes from campus.

Volunteers have joined police in the search for the missing young man.

“He’s alone, he doesn’t have his phone or His wallet, and it’s cold outside,” his mother Lisa Landry told the news outlet. “Maybe he’s hurt.”

It is unclear from the report if investigators have a sense of what caused the damage to Landry’s car, or if another vehicle had been involved in a possible accident.

Anyone with information should contact Luling police at 830-351-4185.
