Military police and local authorities are looking for a missing soldier assigned to 7th Special Forces Group in Crestview, Florida. The search started after Sgt. Greco Antoine Tucker Jr., 23, failed to report for duty Monday morning. He was last seen on Friday.
Tucker “is currently unaccounted for and is not on pass or leave,” Col. Patrick Colloton, 7th Group commander, told in a statement. “Sgt. Tucker is a valued member of the 7th SFG(A) team, and we will do everything we can to facilitate the Crestview Police Department’s investigation.”
His Crestview home showed no signs of forced entry, and his personal property was still in place, according to the police statement. However, his 2014 four-door, white Dodge Charger SE sedan was gone, officers said.
“It is possible he left the area,” Crestview Police Commander Ray Harp said. “He hasn’t reported to work, or to family or friends. It is very out of character for him.”
“We’re looking into the circumstances of Sgt. Tucker’s disappearance to determine if he left on his own accord,” Harp added. “At this point in the investigation, we don’t have any indications of foul play.”
Crestview Police revealed that its Investigations Division obtained search warrants for Tucker’s residence and his electronics, to include phone and computer. The police department also filed a warrant for his bank and financial records.
Operators of 7th Special Forces Group described Tucker as an exemplary soldier, according to the police department. The U.S. Army’s 7th Special Forces Group is located at Eglin Air Force Base. The unit’s area of operations commonly covers Latin America, though the group has operated abroad during the Global War on Terror.
