A $1,000 reward is being offered by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division for information leading to the identification of human remains found on Fort Bliss.

The partial remains were found March 18 in the Castner Range and Hondo Pass Drive area on Fort Bliss near a U.S. Border Patrol station in Northeast El Paso, Fort Bliss officials said.

A person walking in the area found the remains and reported them to law enforcement. Fort Bliss Provost Marshals Office was then notified, and Fort Bliss Criminal Investigation Command agents were sent to investigate.

The remains were discovered above ground and there is no evidence to indicate they had been buried, officials said at the time of the discovery.

Officials said there is no danger to area residents or the community.

It is believed the remains are a man between the ages of 30 to 40 years old with a height between 5 feet, 7 inches to 6 feet tall, officials said.

They believe the man went missing and died between 2017 to 2019.

The man was possibly wearing Black Oakley’s glasses, a blue Under Armor jacket, a white shirt, blue denim pants, a black knee brace, a grey sweatshirt, and white and gray “Wolverine” socks, officials said. A blue Crunch Fitness bag was found with the remains.

Anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division at 915-568-1700 or cid.army.mil/report-a-crime.html.

The $1,000 reward will be given to anyone who provides information leading to the person’s identification. The payout of the reward is contingent on the information is accurate and of value, officials said.
