Through a press release, a specialist from the Regimental Engineer Squadron said, "As soon as we found out Pfc. Guillén was missing we started searching for her. Troopers within the regiment have walked, driven and searched the training areas day in and day out and we will continue to search for her until she is found."

Searches have included buildings, barracks, fields, training areas, lakes and trails around Fort Hood.
