A SWAT standoff in North Austin has come to an end, but the suspect is still missing.

The incident happened midday Tuesday when officers believed 41-year-old Jack Byron Kidd was barricaded inside a house off of Rundberg Lane.

They were trying to serve Kidd with a warrant for possession of a dangerous drug.

Other people inside the home came out when police arrived. SWAT officers cleared the house around 3:30 p.m., but the suspect wasn't there.

Thirty-year-old Crystal Pyron admitted to officers that she sent Kidd a warning text. Pyron was arrested for Hindering Apprehension, a second degree felony.

Police ask anyone with information about Kidd's whereabouts to call 911.
