CCPD expands search for missing Texas A&M-CC student with Dive and Recovery Team

Caleb Wilson Harris reportedly was last seen letting his dog out at his off-campus apartment in the early hours Monday morning.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Editor’s Note: The story has been corrected to show that Caleb Harris was last seen at an off-campus apartment complex.

Law enforcement and volunteers searched along Ennis Joslin Wednesday morning to look for information to find missing Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi student Caleb Wilson Harris. Harris was last seen in the early morning hours Monday letting his dog out at his off-campus apartment complex, The Cottages at Corpus Christi.

Corpus Christi Police Department Public Information Senior Officer Antonio Contreras said the department is expanding the search for Caleb with the Dive and Recovery Team.

“We are still continuing our search for missing person Caleb Harris and we’ve expanded the search a little further,” Contreras said. “We called out the Dive and Recovery Team just to search where we cannot on foot. I had noticed that there’s some canals to the east of us that can only be checked by either boat or by our team, our dive team, and we’ve also continued to move towards the Oso Wetlands, so they’re also checking with drones and also checking on foot.”

HAPPENING NOW: The search continues for missing Texas A&M-Corpus Christi student Caleb Harris.

On Tuesday Corpus Christi Police Department officials confirmed to 3NEWS that a missing person’s report was filed for the 21-year-old Monday.  

Harris’ father, Randy, said Caleb’s dog is at the apartment, but the New Braunfels native’s last known location was a Snapchat ping at 2:45 a.m. Monday.

“By 3 o’clock his phone was dead,” Randy said. “He was totally gone. He doesn’t have his wallet. He doesn’t have any identification on him.”

Randy said Caleb’s keys also were still at his apartment.

“There’s just nothing there that would cause us to believe he was in any danger, he had actually ordered in his food [for] the next day for school,” Randy said.

Caleb was reportedly last seen wearing teal pants and a white shirt. 

His father said he’s grateful for the shares across social media and for his son’s roommates who were out for hours Tuesday placing missing flyers on campus, nearby businesses, and bait stands he used to frequent. 

Caleb is in his second year at the university, Randy said.

A&M-CC officials released a statement at 5 p.m. Tuesday regarding the disappearance:
