UPDATE 1/13/2018 at 11 a.m.:

Randy is still missing and we have nothing new to report. The Bryan Police Department is still working on the case and all leads reported to us have been passed along to them. We will update this when we know something more. Thank you for your concern.

Over the past five days, the nature of the investigation has understandably changed. Action was swift and intense initially, because everyone believed Randy’s disappearance to be related to a life-threatening medical emergency. Now five days have passed, his truck has been located, but he has not been found. The authorities are continuing with a systematic investigation. We, Randy’s family and friends, are struggling to understand what this means. He could have succumbed to the medical condition, but not yet been located or he could have survived it and traveled somewhere else. We are hoping and praying that he has survived.

In talking with his friends and family members during the past five days, we learned that he had spoken to several people recently about wanting to take a vacation in Colorado. He loves the state, loves being in the mountains, and has some good friends there. However, we have also considered that he might have gone toward Houston, since the last electronic signal from the cell phone was in Grimes County on Sunday afternoon.
