Police in Cameron County are still searching for Thomas Smith, and are looking into the possibility that he killed himself.
Endeavor News is reporting on its Facebook page that police received a report of a gunshot fired where a person may have seen Smith last week. Cadaver dogs have been called in to follow up on that lead.
Police have searched property of many of Smith’s relatives but did not say what, if anything, they found.
Smith is accused of kidnapping at woman at gunpoint last Wednesday afternoon. The woman was able to get away.
