Updated Press Release- 5pm, February 16, 2024

Released By: Sheriff Robert Burby

We have continued search efforts at the Sabine River Bridge on Highway 190 East again today, still with no results. The search will resume tomorrow.

From Previous Report:

We received a report of an individual observed jumping from bridge yesterday around noon. We are joined by Texas and Louisiana Parks and Wildlife, Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office, Bon Wier VFD, Deweyville VFD, Merryville VFD, and Merryville PD. We used sonar in the boats and flew the general area by air with a fixed wing plane.

Please join us by keeping the family in our prayers. We will provide updates when any changes become available and/or at the end of the day.
