Where is Jason Landry? Texas State student still missing

Anyone with information about Landry’s disappearance is asked to contact Captain Jeff Ferry of the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office at 512-956-6727.

CALDWELL COUNTY, Texas – On December 13, 2020, Jason Landry, a Texas State University student, disappeared in Caldwell County en route to Houston. Landry’s family lives in Missouri City.

A year after his disappearance, authorities continue to search for the 21-year-old. As late as October 16, the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Search and Rescue (TEXSAR) returned to Caldwell County for a day of research. After the search, there was still no clear answer as to Landry’s whereabouts.

Earlier this year, investigators gained access to the missing student’s phone and computer data. Here is what they discovered:

  • Investigators believe Jason Landry left his San Marcos apartment around 10:55 p.m. on December 13 with the intention of traveling to the Missouri City, Texas area where his parents live.
  • At 11:05 p.m., he drove on Interstate 80 and passed under Interstate 35 in San Marcos. It continued south, entering Caldwell County at 11:07 p.m.
  • At 11:11 p.m. he was in Martindale, continuing south on Hwy 80. He turned onto SH 130 at 11:15 p.m.
  • At 11:17 p.m. it was in Fentress, entering Prarie Lea at 11:19 p.m. and then into the Stairtown area at 11:21 p.m.
  • At 11:24 p.m., he enters Luling, still on Highway 180. As he crosses the intersection with Hackberry Street where Highway 80 becomes Austin Street, he stops using the Waze mapping app and starts using Snapchat on his telephone. It then continued on Austin Street until it intersected with US 183 (Magnolia Avenue).

TEXSAR worked over 2,000 hours on this case and covered 1,336 miles of ground. An additional 655 volunteer hours were spent analyzing data and leads.

Community members held a prayer vigil in Luling at 7 p.m. Monday, where missing persons banners were put up at the corner of E. Pierce Street and N. Cedar Avenue.

Anyone with information about Jason Landry’s disappearance is asked to contact Captain Jeff Ferry of the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office at 512-956-6727.

There’s a $10,000 reward for information that helps investigators find Jason Landry.
