The search for 43 year-old Puneet Nehra is now over. Texas EquuSearch members Tim Miller, Gary Chinnis, Paulie Kovach and Mike Joy located a body this afternoon, that is thought to be that of Puneet. However, positive identification must still be confirmed by medical authorities and law enforcement investigators. The body recovered this afternoon was found approximately 60 miles south (as the river flows) of where Puneet disappeared last Sunday night.
We want to thank all of the Texas EquuSearch members that came out to search for Puneet after he disappeared. We want to say a special thank you to Search Coordinator Jack Boggess for his professionalism and diligent handling of this sensitive case.
We also say a big thank you to the professional divers from Legacy Offshore International that dove into the deep, treacherous waters to blindly hand-search for Puneet. But our thanks to everyone wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t say a special thank you to the Ft. Bend County Sheriff’s Department for their diligence, professionalism, compassion and persistence to find Puneet. The unwavering determination of everyone involved is what brought an end to a very risky and exhausting search.
Thank you all for what you do.
