MIRAMAR (CNS) - Military and civilian law enforcement agencies initiated a search Friday for a missing Marine stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
Cpl. James S. Jessen, 22, was reported missing from his barracks room at 9 a.m. Wednesday, after failing to report to a corporal's course, according to the MCAS Miramar Public Affairs Office.
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and San Diego Police Department investigated his disappearance, and asked runners and hikers to stay alert on local trails because Jessen is an avid runner. Jessen may not be carrying any form of identification.
More than 300 Marines searched for the missing man in areas on base since he was reported missing. The search was scheduled to continue until dark and resume tomorrow morning if Jessen is not found.
Jessen is white, 5 feet 11 inches tall and has a thin muscular build. He has brown eyes and brown hair in a high military haircut.
MCAS Miramar's Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the San Diego Police Department were investigating his disappearance and encouraged anyone who may have any information about the missing Marine to call NCIS at (858) 577-4355; the Criminal Investigations Division at (858) 577-4060; or the SDPD at either (619) 531-2000 or (858)484-3154.
