UPDATE: Human remains, truck found in search for missing man


The pickup belonging to missing person Brian Nesbit was located in the eastern part of Coryell County on November 22.

The vehicle was located in a heavily wooded area towards the eastern section of County Road 342, and was secured in the Sheriff’s Office impound to be further investigated for the possibility of any trace evidence.

At this time, no sign or further evidence pointed to Nesbit’s whereabouts. Special K-9 detection dogs with “Team Texas” K-9’s were brought to the area to search to no avail at this time.

Further consent from land owners was obtained for the area on November 27, with Team Texas being brought back. Skeletal remains were located in the wooded area about 200 yards northwest from where the vehicle was located. Numerous Sheriff’s Office personnel, along with Texas Rangers and the Coryell County District Attorney’s Office, were on scene.

At this time, no positive identification can be made. The skeletal remains have been sent to North Texas for further investigation and positive identification.

Brian’s brother, Bob Dean, has since released this statement:

“I would like to let the public know that today my brother’s remains were found. I don’t have any other information, but would like to thank those who I met on Facebook who helped share my articles the last two months and help us find an answer. I ask for prayers for my mother and immediate family during this awful time.”
