Soldier Posts Cryptic Message on Facebook, Goes Missing
A soldier is missing after a cryptic message was posted on his Facebook page. His family is pleading with the public for help in finding him.
"I just want him to come back, ok. That's all I want," the missing soldier's wife, Brandi Warner said.
Fort Lewis soldier, WA soldier Josh Warner, a mechanic for the 2nd Stryker Brigade, was last seen Wednesday morning when he left his home. Brandi says she thought her husband was going to work like any other day.
"He woke me up to give me a hug and kiss goodbye and then there was cops at my door, pounding on my door," Brandi said.
On Wednesday at 5:37 a.m. a message was posted on Joshs Facebook page that read; "Trust me, Im doing everyone that knows me a favor. Good bye world."
According to Brandi, her husband has disappeared in the past but never this long.
Josh drives a 1991 brown, GMC pick-up with a winch on the front and Oregon license plates that read YXQ038.
Brandi says she's now sleep-deprived and can't focus or concentrate. She told her 5- and 6-year-old sons on Friday that their dad is missing.
"At first I just told them he was at work and then I told them today that he's missing and we're looking for him," Brandi said.
Members of Josh's unit said he didn't show up for physical training on Wednesday.
