    TX - Officer Rachel Hillsman, 24, Katy, 18 August 2009

    Area law enforcement authorities are searching for a female Katy ISD police officer who has reportedly been kidnapped by her heavily-armed boyfriend, who is also a KISD police officer.



    The Waller County Sheriff’s Office said it began looking for the officer when the Katy ISD Police Department reported she did not show up for her regularly-assigned shift this morning.



    Waller County deputies quickly learned the officer had been abducted by her boyfriend, who is also a police officer with the school district. The male officer is reported to be heavily armed with an AR-15 assault rifle, a pistol and a Taser.

    It's horrible that a school district even has a police officer, but I wonder if he was below par and that's why he was placed there in the first place. What a horrible scenario and could have a bad outcome.

    There are police officers at all the high schools here. I remember 2 working at my high school in Dallas years back.

    I hope they find her soon!!!! How scary...he's got some weapons!

    All of the DOT signs on the Dallas area roadways this morning are broadcasting the information on an injuried officer and the description of the green F250. I hope she is found safe.

    according to the link I posted above they had an argument the night before the abduction and Rachel took her two small Children to stay the night at her Mother's house (nurse wonders if Rachel had been living with Trey?) and the next morning as she left with her two children in tow he abducted her and the children were witnesses! The LE on the video also said there was a small amount of blood found. The fact that he did not take the children too or do something to hurt them gives me a modicum of hope for Rachel. I hope he comes to his senses soon and lets her go... if he is this off the handle I could very well seeing this end in a sort of murder~suicide scenario....

    another video report can be watched here:

    THIS video (now I am confused) says that Rachel was dropping her kids off at her Mother's when Trey pulled in behind her and abducted her.. Again... more conflicting reports...

    TX - Rachel Hillsman - 24 years old - Katy - Kidnapped - 18-Aug-2009

    Police say Katy ISD Officer Julio 'Trey' Reyes kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, Officer Rachel Hillsman, Tuesday morning. And now, a massive manhunt for them is underway.
    Waller County Sheriff Glenn Smith tells us they've learned that Reyes bought items the night before the alleged abduction that suggest he's trying to hide out.

    updated info
    Soon after, Reyes called Hillsman's mother to tell her the children were still in the woman's pickup truck by the gate about a half-mile from the home. The children are now being cared for by their grandmother, Smith said.

    The children witnessed the abduction from the car.

    I hope she remains alive. SWAT is negotiating with the suspect.

    A SWAT team was called in after deputies say Officer Julio Reyes shot at search crews looking near Officer Rachel Hillsman’s Brookshire home.

    ”It appears no one has been hurt, thank God," said a source close to the investigation.
    From the article posted by SDkid.

    i hope that SWAT is able to end this quickly and without any loss of life. if he is firing at searchers, he is still very unstable (which we already know since he KIDNAPPED someone!) and hasn't calmed down. scary. i wouldn't be surprised if he commits suicide to avoid having to face this. (just a theory, not what i hope to happen!)
