Texas A&M University Police reported an A&M student went missing and was last seen Thursday. The student — senior agricultural systems management major and Squadron 18 member in the Corps of Cadets Anthony Joseph Carey — was last seen leaving his home in Houston headed to College Station.
Reports followed that Carey’s car, a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer, had been found in Marlin, Texas, which is between Bryan-College Station and Waco off Highway 6.
Later UPD released a statement saying a body was discovered in a heavily wooded area adjacent to where Carey’s vehicle was found.
“Investigators are working to confirm if the body is that of Anthony Joseph Carey,” the statement said.
The victim’s body has been sent to the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences Medical Examiners Office in Dallas for an autopsy.
Lt. Allan Baron said UPD will provide further information as it becomes available.
