Staff Writer

For release by Borger Police Department - In the early hours of Friday October 2nd , Jarric Weber was found alive and well. Weber was taken to a local hospital and was evaluated and released. We now know that no foul play was involved and are thankful that he was reunited with his family. We are continuing to investigate details surrounding the day he was unaccounted for.

We would like to thank everyone involved in the search. There were numerous volunteers that came out and proved helpful with the large amount of area we had to cover. In addition to the volunteers numerous agencies were involved in the search. The Hutchinson County Sheriff’s Office and Borger Police Department ran a joint investigation that would not have been as seamless without the help of the other agencies that responded. Borger Fire Department provided a large amount of resources necessary for the ground search. Texas Parks and Wildlife brought in a tracking k-9 team. National Parks Service at Lake Meredith sent a team trained in tracking of individuals. We worked with Amarillo P.D. in following up several tips that came in. Texas DPS provided assistance as did several volunteer fire departments. Volunteer agencies included Hutchinson County, Fritch Fire and Stinnett Fire. We would also like to thank the F.B. I. for allowing us to consult with them during the investigation. We appreciate the response that we received from news and print media as well as those who spread the word via social media. This kind of positive response from our community speaks volumes about the type of individuals who would give of their own time to help a family in need. The Weber family shares in heartfelt thanks to everyone involved and asks for privacy as they enjoy being reunited with their son.
