Harrison County investigators have been told by Jason Dillard’s family that he has returned home. He’s currently with them in Liberty City. His mother says he’s not injured and appears to be in good health.
A search continues for a missing Harrison County, Texas, man. The sheriff’s office there says 36-year-old Jason Dillard is a white male, between 6’2″ and 6’5″ and 240 pounds. He was last seen at a home on Rupe Huffman Road in rural Harrison County on June 17th. He told people there that he was going to Lake O’ the Pines, but hasn’t been seen since. His vehicle was found abandoned at an address a few miles away on Edmonson Road the same day.
Investigators are still following numerous leads, but have been unable to locate him, even through tips that tied him to the northwestern part of the county and in Longview. Sheriff’s K-9 units have also been brought in on the search. Dillard’s family members are concerned about his well-being, especially because of the extreme heat.
If you know anything that can help locate him, you’re asked to call the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office at 903-923-4000.
