The body of a Fort Hood soldier was found Saturday morning thanks to a citizens report in Nolanville, Texas.

Ke'Sha Lopez with KWTX News 10 reports the soldier has been identified as Tyler James Groves of Elizabeth Colorado.

Groves was the only person in the vehicle which was discovered hidden under the brush along the bank of Nolan Creek between eastbound Interstate 14 east of the Nola Ruth overpass.

Nolanville Police say the call came in around 9:52 a.m. on Saturday. The report said the car was thought to have run off the road and into a heavily wooded area. The brush and overgrowth made the vehicle almost invisible to those passing nearby.

Groves was found deceased inside the 2018 blue Honda Civic. Police believe the accident happened in the early morning hours and that speed was probably the cause of the accident. Groves was pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace Daryl Peters. The soldier was a specialist at Fort Hood assigned to the First Cavalry Division.

His body has been taken to the Centex Mortuary in Temple for further investigation.
