Human Remains found along the Sabine River in Bon Wier:

I want to extent our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to those families who currently have someone missing. Since July 15, 2023, we have continued to search the location where the human remains were discovered. We have conducted extensive searches and talked with law enforcement personnel from Beauregard, Vernon, and Calcasieu Parishes, and Sabine, Jefferson Counties, Texas Parks and Wildlife and used their Cadaver Canine.

Items were collected to assist in our investigation to help determined the identity of the human remains as well as what happen to the person we found. We have received information from law enforcement officials and concerned family members here in Texas, and our bordering state, Louisiana who believe this might be their missing person. This information is very valuable and will aid us immensely in determining the identity of the person we found once we obtain the results of the forensic examination. We are impatiently awaiting these results and I will share this information with the public once it becomes available. If you feel you have information pertaining to this case, please contact the Newton County Sheriff’s Office (409)379-3636.
