According to Rep. Sylvia García and the Guillen family lawyer, the army believes the disappearance of Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, who was missing at the Texas military base two months ago, was a bad game.
García, a Democrat representing the 29th Texas Congressional District, spoke at a Fort Hood press conference Tuesday that the army "is now convinced that it is a foul and they are following all possible indications."
A lawyer from Guillen's family said Fort Hood officials also raised concerns about the foul when they met the soldier's family, USA Today said.
The 20-year-old private first class guillen was last seen at around noon on April 22 at Fort Hood Army Base, Texas, according to an Army CID press release. She apparently walked without a car key, room key, wallet, and ID, all of which were later found in the gun room where she had worked earlier that day.
Their disappearance has sparked protests from protesters who have asked the army to investigate Guillens' case further, and actors Salma Hayek and Latino advocacy organizations have joined to find them.
Officials told Guillens' relatives that Guillen was last contacted on April 22, at 11:30 a.m., and her phone was still not found, USA Today reported.
Guillen's sister Mayra Guillen told NBC News' Dateline last week that her sister had told her that a sergeant had molested her sexually, even though she had never identified the person or reported the incidents.
The CID of the army said investigators had no "credible information" to suggest that Guillen was sexually assaulted. They also ruled out that Guillen's case was in some way related to the disappearance of PV2 Gregory Wedel-Morales, who was missing in August 2019 and was recently found dead.
Guillen's family was frustrated with the army's reaction to Guillen's disappearance.
Her mother, Gloria Guillen, said at the press conference that she raised concerns about her daughter's whereabouts after she was unable to reach her on her cell phone.
"I asked them from the start to look for my daughter, close the base and use the more than 30,000 soldiers to find her, and they never did," she said, according to NBC News. "I asked them to close the base and examine room by room, barrack by barrack, building by building, and they didn't. Why are they doing a show now to look for my daughter?"
The Army is working with the sheriff departments of Texas Rangers, Bell and Coryell County, the Texas Department of Public Security, the Texas Game Wardens, the FBI, and local police forces to search for guilles.
It also offered a $ 25,000 reward to anyone who has credible information about Guillens' whereabouts.
Anyone with information about Guillens' whereabouts was asked to contact the Army CID Special Agents at (254) 287-2722 or the Military Police at (254) 288-1170. People with information can also submit information anonymously at https://www.cid.army.mil/report-a-crime.html.
