From Bowie County Sheriff's Department:

BOWIE COUNTY, TX - On 06-05-13 at 7:15 a.m., Deputy David Gipson responded to a missing person call on Farm to Market 44 West outside of DeKalb, Texas. He met Glenda Quinn who reported that her son Joseph Gaspard had left home around 7:00 pm on 06-03-13 in his silver 1988 Honda Accord two door with Texas tag CR6D445 to take a friend named Emily Rose Dudley to get her car.

Later in the evening, Gaspard called Mrs. Quinn back to tell her he had taken a wrong turn and gotten lost in the woods. Mrs. Quinn looked for her son due to this happening twice before and both times she was able to find him. Mrs. Quinn last spoke with her son on 06-04-13 around 7:00 pm. At that time, he told her he was alone in the woods and his vehicle was stuck in a ditch full of water.

Mrs. Quinn is concerned for her son's welfare due to his medical conditions that cause him to become confused. Gaspard suffers from kidney failure and has to have dialysis three times a week. Gaspard's cellular phone last hit a cellular tower located at Farm to Market 44 and Interstate 30 indicating that he was west or south of this location. Deputies and Officers from Texas Parks and Wildlife have conducted a ground search in this area. The area has also been searched by air with helicopters from the Bowie County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety. All of these efforts have been met with negative results.

Residents who live in the area west and south of Farm to Market 44 and Interstate 30 are asked to check trails and roads on their lands for Gaspard and his vehicle. Investigators are also still attempting to make contact with Emily Rose Dudley as she was the last person to see Gaspard. Anyone with information about Gaspard or Dudley is asked to contact the Bowie County Sheriff's Office at 903.798.3149 or by calling 911.

Missing Person: Joseph Edward Gaspard, white male, 06/05/1965, 5'5", 130, shaved head, blue eyes, and has tattoo sleeves on both arms. Mr. Gaspard was last seen wearing a camouflage hat, a camouflage shirt, camouflage pants, and brown boots.
