Appellant's brief was originally due on July 13, 2018. On August 1, 2018, we notified appellant that his brief had not been filed as required by Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 38.6(a). See Tex. R. App. P. 38.6(a). We stated that we could dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution unless appellant filed with the court within ten days an appellant's brief and a motion reasonably explaining the failure to file an appellant's brief and the need for an extension. See Tex. R. App. P. 10.5(b), 38.8(a)(1), 42.3(b). We have not received any response.
Because appellant has failed to file a brief after having been given an opportunity to provide a reasonable explanation for the failure, we dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.8(a)(1), 42.3(b), 43.2(f).
