A Fort Hood soldier who was reported missing from the base has been found “safe” with relatives, officials said
Pfc. Jennifer Sewell’s relatives confirmed to her chain of command that she is “safe and with extended family” after she didn’t show up for work at the base Thursday near Killeen, Texas, according to the Fort Hood Directorate of Emergency Services.
“Pfc. Sewell is a valued member of our team, and our number one priority is ensuring her safe return. We are in regular contact with her family and will provide any assistance she and her family may need to return to Fort Hood,” Ltc. Octavia Davis, commander of Regimental Support Squadron, 3d Cavalry Regiment, said in a statement.
Officials asked for help finding Sewell over the weekend after she left her on-post barracks and didn’t return calls from her family, superiors or law enforcement.
“Fort Hood officials continue to communicate with Sewell’s family and friends, to ensure she has access to resources she may need and to return her safely to Fort Hood,” the base said.
