Fort Hood High Water

The entry point where a car was swept away Tuesday, April 11, 2017, due to high water, is seen Thursday, April 13, 2017, on Turkey Run Road at Fort Hood. The vehicle was recovered, but the person is still missing.

FORT HOOD — No new updates were reported by post officials on Thursday, 10 days after the search began for a missing person who was said to have been swept away into high water.

The search continues, Fort Hood spokesman Tyler Broadway said Thursday.

Emergency responders will continue until the person is found "or it is determined otherwise by the experts involved in the search," Fort Hood spokesman Christopher Haug said Wednesday.

The person, whose identity has not been released, went missing April 11 near Clear Creek adjacent to Turkey Run Road. A red Ford Focus was recovered, but officials have not said whether the person still missing was driving the car, or whether a missing person’s report was filed for someone who might have been in the car.

A diver, Lori Pohanka-Kalama, 46, died during search efforts on Sunday.

Public visitations for her will be Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 1 a.m. to noon in Temple at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home, 500 W. Barton Ave. A public memorial service will be 7 p.m. Saturday, also in Temple at the Vista Community Church, 7051 Stone Hollow Drive.

A procession from the Harper-Talasek Funeral Home to the Austin Bergstrom International Airport will begin at 7 a.m. Sunday.
