Missing Soldier Found in Traverse City

Posted: Updated:

A man who disappeared from boot camp in 2007 was located this weekend in northern Michigan, under a different name.

Police were dispatched by the US Army's Military Desertion unit on Friday night in Traverse City, and after interviewing the man, they discovered he was listed as a military deserter.

But his family says this is a misunderstanding, they say he tried to turn himself in to the Army before but they weren't interested.

He is lodged at the Grand Traverse County Jail, and will be turned over to the Army to face charges.
