Still No Sign of Missing Aggie Airman After More Searching

There was no luck for search crews in Washington State in their latest attempts to find a College Station native and Texas A&M graduate.

All day Tuesday, crews went over a nearly 30-mile stretch of the Spokane River searching for Air Force Airman First Class James Adam Lassiter, who went missing March 31 after a canoe trip.

Because of rough conditions on the water in previous days, Tuesday was the first large search effort since the middle of last week. There was no searching done by law enforcement Wednesday, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Members of Lassiter's College Station family have been in Eastern Washington to help with any efforts.

The search for the 26-year-old began April 2 when he did not show up to work at Fairchild Air Force Base outside of Spokane, which is near the Washington-Idaho border.
