Private Bishop Evans was reported missing from the Texas Army National Guard Field Artillery on April 22 after a rescue attempt in the Rio Grande River, writes CNN.
The Texas Army National Guard is part of the United States Army, National Guard, and state military forces.
The 22-year-old from Arlington jumped into the river, which flows on the US-Mexico border, to rescue two migrants who appeared to be drowning in the strong current.
Both migrants are said to have escaped crossing the Rio Grande, and were taken away by a border patrol when they landed. Now, however, the 22-year-old is missing.
According to reports from the Texas Rangers, the two immigrants are now suspected of being involved in an illegal drug trade — both are currently in Border Police custody, according to CNN.
