Officials say the teacher has made contact with his family and they are calling off the search.

ALVIN, Texas — Texas EquuSearch says a missing agriculture teacher from Alvin ISD has been found safe.

EquuSearch says Craig Kettler has been in contact with his family.

The family is also requesting everyone to respect their privacy at this time.

On Monday, Texas EquuSearch said they were flying over an area along I-10 where they believe they spotted the teacher's vehicle.

Alvin ISD was also involved in the search before he was found safe.

"The students love him, the parents love him, we love him," said Alvin ISD director of communications Renae Rives who is helping get the word out about the teacher's initial disappearance. "He does so much for our kids and for the community and that’s why we’re so concerned”

Colleagues say a tug-of-war video recently posted on Alvin FFA’s Facebook page illustrates his passion for working with kids.
