Vanessa Guillen is a 20- year-old Soldier stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. She was last seen on April 22 at 1p.m. in the parking lot of her Regimental Engineer Squadron Headquarters on Fort Hood. She is of Hispanic descent, five feet, two inches tall, 126 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Vanessa was last seen wearing a black shirt, light purple leggings and black Nike tennis shoes. Vanessa has the tattoo of a cross with a flower on her left arm, another flower also on the left arm, and a mountain with a circle on her upper left shoulder. She has a small mole between her lower mouth, and her chin.
Before going missing, she reported to her family that she was sexually assaulted by one of her sergeants on her base. The Army has waited two months to make any commitment to finding her after receiving backlash from the public.
The Army suspects foul play in the disappearance of a 20-year-old Fort Hood soldier, a Fort Hood official said Tuesday after a meeting with the family of Vanessa Guillen.
