PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona family is searching for a U.S. Marine who left for Camp Pendleton on Monday but never arrived at the base outside San Diego.
Stacy Wallace said her 20-year-old son, Job Covey Wallace, loves the Marines, was recently promoted and was excited to get back to Pendleton after a three-day leave.
She said he was last seen leaving a friend’s house in Surprise, AZ, around 9 p.m. Monday.
A Surprise police spokesman said officers took a report and have turned the matter over to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. NCIS officials did not immediately respond to questions from the Associated Press.
