The following is a press release from the Lubbock Police:
The Lubbock Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit is no longer looking for Cameron Long, 21, because he is no longer considered missing.
Long’s family reported him missing to the police at 6:28 p.m. on Sunday, May 7th. On Monday, May 8th, the department issued a press release asking for the public’s assistance.
Long’s body was discovered in a field in North Lubbock County on May 9th in the afternoon. The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office located his vehicle at 7:07 a.m. Friday, May 5th, following reports of a check welfare in the area of FM 2641 and County Road 6200.
The case’s publicity enabled law enforcement to link Friday’s discovery of the vehicle to Long. Officers returned to the scene today and searched the area, finding his body a long distance away from where the vehicle had been.
At this time, foul play is not suspected. However, the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the circumstances surrounding his death.
