Where is Vanessa Guillen? Fort Hood soldier has been missing for two months

On Tuesday, the congresswoman and the missing solider's family will address the public during their visit to the Army base at 11 a.m.

KILLEEN, Texas — U.S. Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia will join the family of Vanessa Guillen Tuesday as they speak with U.S. Army leaders nearly two months after the Fort Hood solider disappeared.

Texas EquuSearch continues to search continues for Vanessa Guillen.

“We know time is not on our side," Texas EquuSearch Founder Tim Miller said.

“We have a young woman who served our country, who went missing at work," said Natalie Khawam, attorney for the Guillens.

Vanessa’s car, keys and wallet were all left behind. The only thing missing is her cell phone.

“There’s something extremely troubling about this case. A military base is probably one of the most secure places you can be. You have ID check-ins -- there are security cameras everywhere," said Khawam.

She says Vanessa never reported the harassment because she was scared of retaliation. The family is planning a press conference at Fort Hood Tuesday at 11 a.m.

If you have any information on Vanessa's whereabouts, contact Army CID Special Agents at (254) 287-2722.
