A Texas A&M University student who went missing the day he was expected to graduate over a week ago has been found dead. 22-year-old Tanner Hoang was discovered in Austin on Saturday, according to ABC News. Hoang was last seen on the morning of December 16 at the Trails at Wolf Pen apartment complex located in College Station.

The student, who was studying mechanical engineering, was reported missing by his family when he had failed to show up at a celebratory lunch just before his graduation ceremony. The Austin Police Department told news outlet KVUE that a body was found near Pennybacker Bridge, but couldn’t confirm whether it had belonged to Hoang.

A day before, Hogan’s silver 2009 Lexus was found near Pennybacker Bridge Overlook trail located at Highway 360 and the Colorado River. He had appeared to be driving westbound on Highway 21 after getting gas at a Shell gas station in Caldwell.

“He was supposed to graduate but I’m not sure what happened that would cause him to leave,” his uncle, Bao Hoang, told KXXV. He noted the student’s disappearance was out of character.

“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,” he noted. A Facebook group, “Finding Tanner Hoang,” amassed over 14,000 followers had confirmed the news of his death on Saturday night.

“This afternoon Tanner was found deceased in the vicinity of the Pennybacker Bridge on Loop 360,” group’s administrator Michael C. Miller wrote. According to the student’s family, there was no foul play involved in his death.

“Tanner’s family wants everyone to know how much they have appreciated everyone’s help,” he continued.
