Army creates new ‘missing soldier’ policy to prevent disappearances ending in tragedy | Military.com
By U.S. Army - https://www.latimes.com/espanol/california/articulo/2020-06-16/donde-esta-vanessa-guillen-desaparece-joven-soldado-dentro-de-base-militar-se-quejaba-de-acoso, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=91821273

The Army has announced a new classification system for missing soldiers following several reviews of Fort Hood after disappearance and murder of Spc. Vanessa Guillen and other soldiers. An independent review found that many sergeants showed an “unwillingness or lack of ability” to keep track of their soldiers. Spc. Vanessa Guillen was found dead after being listed as absent without leave despite being murdered by fellow soldier Spc. Aaron Robinson. The new policy will require commanders to determine if a soldier’s absence is voluntary before listing them as AWOL.
