A Fort Hood soldier has been reported missing after she failed to show up for work at the base, officials said.

Jennifer Sewell, a private first-class soldier, was last seen around 4 p.m. Thursday and left her barracks, the Fort Hood Directorate of Emergency Services said Saturday.

She is believed to have left on her own, but she has since failed to report for work and has not returned calls from her family, superiors or law enforcement officials, officials said.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact the military police.

“Military officials are in constant contact with Sewell’s unit, her family and close friends to ensure her health and safety,” officials said.

The base has been plagued by tragic disappearances and deaths over the past few years, including the high-profile case of the missing soldier Vanessa Guillen, who was found shaken to death in June 2020.

Fort Hood has reported that Jennifer Sewell did not show up for work since October 7, 2021. Military officials are investigating.

An independent review of the Texas base – caused by the deaths of more than two dozen soldiers there the same year – concluded that military leaders did not adequately deal with high levels of sexual assault and harassment, drug use and other issues.
