The remains of one of two missing Fort Hood soldiers were discovered Friday in Killeen, Texas, according to Fort Hood officials.

The skeletal remains have been positively identified as those of Pvt. Gregory Morales.

Morales’ remains were discovered in a field near the 3200 block of Florence Road Friday morning after U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command Special Agents received information as to the location of the body, according to a Fort Hood media release.

Foul play is suspected at this point in the investigation. Army Special Agents are working closely with the Killeen Police Department and are offering a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone with credible information concerning the circumstances surrounding the death of Morales.

Morales was positively identified using dental records with the assistance of the U.S. Army Dental Corps. An autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause and manner of death.

Investigators say they “have no credible information that this case is in any way connected to the search for Pfc. Vanessa Guillen who went missing from Fort Hood in April. That investigation is still being aggressively investigated,” the release states.95150816 2558022634447403 8880072994488057856 n

Morales’ mother, Kim Wedel, told a local television station that investigators found her son’s remains.

"It was a missing soldier. My missing soldier Greg Wedel," his mother, Kim Wedel wrote in an email Saturday to Houston ABC station KTRK.

Police said skeletal remains were found Friday in a field several miles from Fort Hood, after a tip to Army criminal investigators. Army officials confirmed the identity on Sunday. Morales was last seen driving his personal vehicle off-post in the town of Killeen on the night of Aug. 19, 2019. He was driving a 2018 Black KIA Rio with temporary Texas license tags – 46190B3, according to the Army. The vehicle has since been recovered by authorities.

He was set to be discharged within a couple of days when he disappeared, according to the Army. Though his mother told a Texas television station her son’s remains were found, Morales still appears to be listed as a deserter by the Army, with the date of desertion one month after he was last seen.

The last known verbal contact with Morales was Aug. 20, 2019. Morales, also known as Gregory Wedel, was out processing from the Army and was scheduled to be discharged within a couple of days when he disappeared. Wedel was his last name before taking his wife’s name in marriage.

Wedel, Morales’ mother, told local Texas media that her daughter-in-law tracked down Morales’ vehicle on Carfax. It was in Dallas this December and is now held by Army CID. She also said she does not believe her son would have intentionally vanished given that he was set to be discharged.

“What it would tell me is that they also suspect something has happened at this point, beyond him just going AWOL,” Wedel said.

As investigators work to find answers about what happened to Morales, they are also searching for Guillen, another missing Fort Hood soldier.

The 3rd Cavalry Regiment on Fort Hood, Texas, is conducting its own investigation into allegations that Guillen, 20, faced sexual harassment from a sergeant prior to her April 22 disappearance, according to a Texas congresswoman lobbying for answers.

Investigators say they “have no credible information that this case is in any way connected to the search for Pfc. Vanessa Guillen who went missing from Fort Hood in April. That investigation is still being aggressively investigated,” the release states.

rawImageGuillen’s family has lobbied for Army CID and Fort Hood officials to be more transparent about the ongoing investigation and search process.

Rep. Sylvia García said during a press conference Tuesday with Guillen’s family that she has been in touch with Col. Ralph Overland, 3rd Cavalry Regiment commander.

Guillen’s family has said that the missing soldier complained to her mother about an Army sergeant who was sexually harassing her and following her on runs prior to her disappearance.

“I was pleased this morning, on a call with the colonel, he mentioned that he had formed his own internal investigative group to look at every allegation related to sexual assault or sexual harassment in this case,” García said Tuesday afternoon. “So I’m hopeful that that, too, will shed light on this.”

Officials from 3rd Cavalry Regiment confirmed last week that Overland appointed a team led by a senior investigating officer to conduct an AR 15-6 Investigation into allegations by Guillen’s family that the soldier was sexually harassed.

Guillen’s older sister, Mayra, told Army Times last week she was unsure whether her sister ultimately reported the sexual harassment to the Army’s Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention program. A website for Guillen states she told her mother she was worried her allegations would get her in trouble or be brushed aside.


“We know that the armed services do not always have the best record when it comes to cases of sexual assault,” García said. “So we cannot let these allegations go without full investigation.”

García also asked the regiment commander for “a concrete deadline about what they have been doing to find Vanessa and ensure there is more transparency in this case.”

“We are still waiting on information from the base, and I would certainly like the FBI to have a more robust investigation in conjunction with [Army CID],” García added.

Mayra, Guillen’s sister, wants the FBI to take over the case from Army CID, because of what she termed the lack of information being provided.

Guillen’s family has raised questions about how much of a search effort is actually underway, as well as about the absence of video surveillance records. The family was told there is no camera in the armory where Guillen worked prior to her disappearance before 1 p.m. April 22.

“It happened inside a federal building, a military base, and we still don’t get answers as to who, what, where exactly and why,” Mayra said last week.

Persons with information can contact Army CID Special Agents at 254-287-2722 or the Military Police Desk at 254-288-1170. They can also anonymously submit information at https://www.cid.army.mil/report-a-crime.html. They can also contact their local police departments. People wishing to remain anonymous will be honored to the degree allowable under the law and the information will be held in the strictest confidence allowable.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The number of missing person reports in Montana increased last year compared to previous years, according to state officials.

Deputy Attorney General Jon Bennion said during a news conference on Tuesday that may mean missing people are being more accurately reported after state officials took steps to address the issue, particularly in the case of missing and murdered Native Americans.

For example, law enforcement officials filed only 10 missing persons reports related to the Northern Cheyenne tribe in 2017 and 2018, according to a Montana Department of Justice report. Last year, that number jumped to 39 reports, The Billings Gazette reported.

The report says 3,277 different people were reported missing from 2017 to 2019. It says 97% of the people were found alive or dead and 3% remained missing.

The report finds Native Americans, which account for 6% of Montana’s population, are four times more likely to go missing that non-Natives.

We don't simply maintain the records you enter into the database, but we are always getting tips and searching online for new information to update each record.  All tips we receive are immediately forwarded to you or investigative contact provided.

Our data is also cross referenced with other reporting agencies to gather additional information that may not have been included in your initial intake.

All cases we profile are Search Engine Optimized to get as much traction as possible by using the best "Keywords" to make the file easier to find in online searches.  We also provide you a complete dashboard to handle all profile entry and editing with complete statistics and social sharing capabilities.

Soon we will be adding a comprehensive press submission tool to be sure each case is submitted to globally recognized news agencies to further publicize the case.

About the campaign

Help us help them . . . we cannot achieve our goals on our own, we need your support at any level to keep our mission alive.

We are growing everyday and there are literally thousands of missing persons cases no one has ever heard of and fallen through the cracks with no media exposure and
usually, very little search effort from authorities.

Initially, locating a missing person is a community based mandate. If people in the local community aren't informed or have a place to learn more about people missing in
their area, the missing will simply vanish without a trace and no one will look for them again.

At that point families are left with only hope that the missing person will miraculously find their way home.  Unfortunately, for many missing people and their families, this is
not the reality.

Having a central location for all missing people to be registered by the families, law enforcement and volunteers is the way to cut down on the time it takes for people to
learn about the cases and to access them faster than ever before.  

Your donation helps our efforts and makes it possible to us to reach further, acquire new technology and be able to get the word out on new cases and old ones that have
gone cold.

Thank you for visiting today and even more for for your generous donation.

Whether you are someone with a missing family member or a law enforcement representitive in need of gaining vaulable exposure to your missing person(s),
we can help.listings
 
Our database has been designed to be used by people worldwide who need to get more attention to new and old missing persons files.  One of the biggest problems in the missing persons reporting system is, there are simply too many places missing people are listed.  So, this usually means if someone was reported missing in one city, they might be listed with the local police, but the missing person does not show up on county, state or international registries.  This is a huge issue when asking for the public to assist.
 
The only way to find a missing persons in many cases is to have the public's assistance and providing one central profiling registry is important so people can learn more and verify information associated with any missing person they want to search for or may think they have seen.  Law enforcement alone cannot be held responsible for locating missing people, we as a society need to do all we can to help find the missing as well.
 
In 2019 the FBI received mssing person reports on more than 607,000 people.  It's impossible for any agency to manage this caseload alone and acutally have any success finding people that truly need to be searched for.
 
For those people who have been abducted, lost, medically endangered or have not been in contact with family members in some time, these are the ones that need everyone looking for them, not just law enforcement.
 
To support wider scaled efforts to search for missing people, our profiles are the most comprehensive of all reporting systems and include associations to known suspects and other registries the records originated from.
 
Anyone can register for an account with us to enter profiles into our system.  All profiles will be verified with law enforcement or to be sure they have been entered into other publically available reporting systems.
