We found 72-year-old Veteran Thomas Thornton in his car underwater, solving a 7-month-old missing person case in Huxley, Texas, bringing home a father, grandfather, and friend.
This documentary brings you alongside Adventures With Purpose’s search on October 24th, 2021, following the clues Thomas left behind, leading to the discovery of where Thomas and his SUV had gone missing in Texas at the Huxley Bay Marina 7-months earlier, before being found and recovered.

Questions or Want to Tell Us About a Case?
Thornton, 72, had not been seen since a surveillance camera captured him leaving a gas station in Hemphill on Wednesday, March 24.
The Vietnam War veteran who lived in the Mt. Neches area of Tyler County, Texas had been suffering from early stages of dementia.
Thomas was driving a dark gray 2017 Ford Edge SUV with Texas license plate NJJ-8580.
He had never been heard from again.
Clues we had to work with.
Thomas was last seen on Wednesday, March 24th leaving his home in the Town Bluff Community to go to Walmart in Jasper, but he hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Family members say the Vietnam Veteran is in the early stages of dementia.
Cell phone and credit card activity had placed Thornton in Hemphill, Many, Louisiana, and finally in Center, but that’s the last traceable activity.
AWP then breaks down a search area looking at the most likely access points into the water near the last known locations.
Identifying the Huxley Bay Marina as having a straight road into the lake with no gates or turns, this made the most logical location to begin our search for Thomas.
After just 12-minutes on the water using sonar, we identified a vehicle underwater while members of our team found Ford Edge SUV pieces laying on the shore of the lake.
Upon diving on the vehicle, it was confirmed to be Thomas’ Ford Edge, license plate NJJ-8580.
We are humbled by the opportunity all of you have given us to help in the search for answers as to what happened to Thomas.
Hug the ones you love for you never know when it might be the last time you see them.
