Caddo Sheriff’s deputies were searching for a Shreveport man.

Micah Roberts, 22, was last seen leaving his grandparents’ home in the 12000 block of Boyter Lane on Wednesday (1/11/23) after 1 a.m. He was last seen barefoot wearing a white shirt and khaki pants.

Caddo deputies were dispatched after 8 a.m. to a suspicious circumstance and Roberts’ welfare became a concern. Sheriff’s deputies deployed K9 search teams and drones to aid in the search.

As the search continued, other agencies, local and out of state, deployed personnel to the area. The Texas Department of Public Safety Air Support Operations provided an airplane and Life Air provided a helicopter to search the area from above. The Marion County Sheriff’s Department, Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Shreveport Fire K9 Search & Rescue, and a K9 volunteer group from Texarkana provided extra support on the ground.

On Saturday, January 14, just before 1 p.m., Micah Roberts was found deceased in a heavily wooded area behind his grandparents’ home, during an organized search.

A death investigation is underway.
