Fort Hood soldier missing, family, law enforcement asking for help

FORT HOOD - Fort Hood's 1st Cavalry Division released a statement Thursday regarding the disappearance of a soldier who had not been seen since Monday.

Pvt Dakota Stump, 19, was last seen driving a 2006 black Ford Mustang with red interior.  He is in the 1st Cav Apache Troop, 4th Squadron, 9th Cav Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team.

Stump's brother, Dustin, said his brother had been drinking a lot and that when he drinks he gets angry and can get in fights.

He said, Dakota told him the army wasn't what he expected and that he thought he would see more action.

A spokesperson for 1st Cav released a statement to Channel 6 Thursday afternoon.

"The first and foremost concern of the 1st Cavalry Division is this soldier's safety and well being.  Leadership within his unit continues to work hand in hand with law enforcement and members of his unit are actively reaching out to all known friends and family members in order to locate this soldier," the statement read.  "The soldier's unit is certainly making every effort to find him as quickly as possible to ensure his safety.  We have no further incite as to whether or not he is in immediate danger."
