Texas A&M student vanishes without a trace

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Caleb Harris, a 21-year-old student from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, has been reported missing since Monday. His last known location was The Cottages, an off-campus residential complex primarily for A&M students, as per the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Rachel Gomez, the mother of Harris’ flatmate, took to social media on Tuesday, making a desperate plea for help in finding Harris. She indicated that Harris left the apartment with only his mobile phone, leaving his wallet and vehicle behind. A missing persons report is now in effect.

A Facebook post by Denise Hall suggested that Harris was last seen walking his dog around 2:45 a.m. on Monday. He returned the dog to the apartment and went out again, possibly to collect a food delivery. His phone was off by 3 a.m. and has not been turned on since. His personal belongings, including his wallet, keys, and vehicle, were found in his apartment.

Hall stated that the police, albeit slow to start, eventually initiated a search operation using drones and dirt bikes. Harris’ family, friends, and roommates have been tirelessly looking for him, distributing flyers and speaking to locals across Corpus Christi.

Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers confirmed in a Facebook post that Harris’ roommates and family reported him missing after failing to locate him since his last appearance at the apartment complex. The post also highlighted that Harris’ phone remains switched off.

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi has acknowledged Harris’ disappearance. The university appealed to the public to keep Harris and his family in their thoughts and expressed optimism for his safe return. They urged anyone with information about Harris’ whereabouts to contact the Corpus Christi Police Department or the university police.
