The Army Criminal Investigation Division issued a statement Tuesday, saying partial human remains were found during a search of an area of interest close to the Leon River in Bell County. Army CID agents responded to the scene with the Texas Rangers, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the Bell County Sheriff's Office. The Army said there is no confirmation as to the identity of the remains at this point.

Added a new video clip to the gallery on this file.  Based on what is being released in the media, there is a very strong possibility Vanessa left the base the day she disappeared with someone, most likely a superior who when leaving the base did not have his vehicle inspected when leaving.  She could have been in the vehicle as a passenger or stowed away, possibly unconscious in the trunk as well.  Reports say she was seen at 1:00 PM in the parking lot of the base, then why didn't she leave in her own vehicle, did she just arrive at 1:00 PM or did she get into a vehicle with someone else and leave the base, never to return?
