Details of Disappearance

Landry was last seen in San Marcos, Texas on December 13, 2020. He left his apartment at 10:55 p.m. to drive to Missouri City, Texas, where his family is from. He has never been heard from again.

After his disappearance, his vehicle, a silver 2003 Nissan Altima with the Texas license plate number BV1Y123, was found wrecked and abandoned in the 2300 block of Salt Flat Road just outside of Luling, Texas, about a thirty-minute drive from San Marcos. The car's lights were on, the keys in the ignition and the front passenger door was locked. Landry's keys, wallet, phone and other personal belongings were inside the car.

About 900 feet south of the car was the clothing Landry is believed to have been wearing at the time of the crash. There was no indication that the clothes had been forcibly removed, but there was a small amount of blood in the underwear. Landry's backpack, some toiletry items and a tumbler with his pet beta fish inside (dead) were a short distance away, north of the clothes.

Investigators believe the crash happened between 11:30 p.m. on December 13 and 12:30 a.m. on December 14, and that Landry was driving, sustained little to no injury and was able to walk away from the crash site. They believe whatever caused his disappearance, happened after the crash occurred. Dogs tracked Landry's scent for a quarter of a mile from the crash site, then lost the trail.

On the night of his disappearance, prior to setting out for Missouri City, Landry spoke to a friend via a video call for nearly an hour. His friend thought at the time that Landry seemed "messed up" and probably wouldn't be able to remember the conversation later, so he recorded it. The recording, however, was only of the video; the audio was not captured. The conversation ended after Landry went out to his car and started the drive to Missouri City.

Landry was a student at Texas State University in San Marcos at the time of his disappearance, and went missing shortly after finishing his autumn term final exams. His case remains unsolved.
