Search on for Texas A&M student missing since Friday

The family of a missing Texas A&M student remains hopeful their son can be found nearly a week after he disappeared.

His relatives had scheduled to meet Tanner Hoang for lunch prior to what they thought would be his graduation. They expressed shock that he did not show up Friday.

“I think I was thinking this is not characteristic of Tanner. When we have family gatherings from Tanner, he’s there. He’s never been this way. So it was. I was a little bit shocked about it, but nevertheless,” said Tanner’s uncle Quan Hoang to Fox7.

The family would later learn that he fell short of graduation requirements and would not be participating in the ceremony with his class.

Surveillance video indicates he was last seen on Highway 290 in Elgin on Friday, Dec 16 before 1 p.m., reports KBTX. He had earlier been in Caldwell on Highway 21.

He is driving a 2009 silver Lexus ES350. His license plate is BS2C737. Tanner is 6 feet tall and weighs about 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

“He was supposed to graduate but I’m not sure what happened that would cause him to leave,” another uncle, Bao Hoang said. “I think the last thing we know definitively is that he was on [Highway] 21 picking up gas to go in a westerly direction away from Bryan/College Station.”

His family sent this message to Tanner.

“Just let him know his family loves him, his entire extended family, that God loves him, there’s nothing that he has done that would keep us from loving him,” said another relative Tuan Hoang to KHOU.
