On Friday, Joseph Gaspard’s vehicle was located off of County Road 4313 in western Bowie County. Deputies and volunteers have spent the day searching the wooded areas surrounding this location on horseback, on foot, from the air with a helicopter, and with canines. Despite these efforts, he has not been located. The search for Gaspard continues with the hope of locating him. 

Deputies with the Bowie County Sheriff's Department responded to a missing person call on Farm to Market 44 West outside of DeKalb, Texas. Gaspard's mother, Glenda Quinn, reported that her son had left home on June 3 to take a friend, Emily Rose Dudley, to get her vehicle. Later that evening, Gaspard called his mother back to tell her he had taken a wrong turn in the woods and gotten lost. 

Quinn last spoke with her son on June 4 around 7 p.m. when Gaspard said he was alone in the woods and that his vehicle was stuck in a ditch full of water. Quinn is concerned for her son's welfare due to medical conditons that cause him to become confused. Gaspard also suffers from kidney failure and has to have dialysis three times per week. 

Gaspard is described as a white male, who is 48 years old. He is 5'5" tall and weighs approximately 130 pounds. Gaspard has blue eyes and tattoo sleeves on both arms. He was last seen wearing a camouflage hat, a camouflage shirt, camouflage pants, and brown boots. 

Anyone with information should contact the Bowie County Sheriff's Office at 903-798-3149.
