EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – After almost 12 hours, the “Clear Alert” for a missing Fort Bliss soldier has been discontinued.

The “Clear Alert” was activated Friday morning for Fort Bliss soldier Jayson Acido, who had gone missing.

Friday morning, the Fort Bliss Provost Marshal Office announced that they were searching for 24-year-old Jayson Acido, a Pacific Island male.

The original alert was put in place as officials said Acido was last seen at 5 PM, on Wednesday, April 27 at Fort Bliss in a White, 2015 Honda Accord.

Shortly after 4:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, officials discontinued the alert. Officials tell KTSM that Acido had been ‘accounted for,’ but did not provide any further details.

“In this particular instance this is what we call a solider wellness drill. And that wellness drill includes different processes that we have to try and identify the actual duty status of a United States Army Solider assigned here to Fort Bliss. And we go through different protocols that include part of the clear alert and notifying the community,” said Allie Scott the Division Public Affairs Officer for First Armored Division of Fort Bliss.
