FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

A soldier that has been missing since October was found dead next to a flipped-car found on Fort Hood in a wooded area.

The vehicle was discovered by soldiers who were conducting land-navigation training. The Fort Hood Public Affairs Office said based on the damage to the car and surrounding areas, early indications are the vehicle left the roadway and rolled over multiple times.

Due to heavy vegetation, the vehicle was not visible from the road.  

Pvt. Dakota Stump, 19, was declared in AWOL status by the 1st Calvary Division in October. He had been missing since Oct. 10.

Stump’s mother said two representatives from the army informed her that he had been found dead on Thursday.

She was also told that he may have opened another bank account and his phone was possibly on airplane mode.

Stump entered active-duty service in March as an indirect-fire infantryman. He was assigned to 4th Squadron, 9th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, since July.

Stump's awards and decorations include the National Defense Service Medal and Army Service Ribbon.
