Police in College Station are asking for assistance in finding a Texas A&M student who went missing last week, reported CBS DFW.
Tanner Hoang, 22, was last seen at 11 a.m. on December 16 by his roommates. Hoang turned his cell phone off at around 8:30 a.m.
On social media, Hoang’s family said they were in town to watch his graduation ceremony. However, according to the family, Hoang had fallen short of his graduation requirements.
Texas A&M said he was not part of its ceremony.
Hoang’s family said Tanner’s debit card was used around noon at a gas station in Caldwell, reported KBTX.
The Texas Department of Public Safety expanded its search Monday to cover the area of Lee County and west of Burleson County.
According to the Amber Alert Network Brazos Valley, Hoang could be in a silver Lexus with Texas license plate number BS2C737.
“If they have a definitive time frame, if they have a direction of travel, if they have a very specific vehicle description and in this case, there is a very specific description,” it is critical that such information be shared, said Chuck Fleeger, executive director of Amber Alert Network Brazos Valley.
Hoang’s family has started a Facebook group to post updates on the search.
According to the latest update from December 19: “As of 11 am today, DPS has determined based on video evidence that Tanner left the Shell station in Caldwell and the[n] headed Westbound on Hwy 21 towards Old Dime Box, Lincoln, Bastrop, San Marcos.”
