    UT - Spc. Joseph Michael Bushling, 26, Dugway, 8 May 2011

    The Army is searching for a missing soldier on the expansive military range who used his cell phone to report he was without shoes and is possibly using his shirt as footwear.

    "We don't have phone contact any longer,"
    said Dugway spokeswoman Paula Thomas.

    He was driving a 2010 black Mitsubishi Lancer sports car and called to report he had run out of gas.

    (For anyone who recognizes "Dugway" you have heard it in Susan Powell threads.)

    His flip-flops have since been recovered by the Army.

    Inclement weather kept the Army and Tooele County officials from searching by air Monday morning, but a search force was at work on the ground.

    First responders from Dugway and Tooele County are searching...

    They found the flip flops... they know where he WAS... bringing in the right SAR dogs and starting where the shoes were might lead them to him....

    How did he lose his flip flops? Is it snowing there right now?

    Prayers that he is found safe and sound.
    You are the anchor to my soul, you won't let go ...

    Dugway Proving Ground covers 798,214 acres: an area approximately the size of Rhode Island. It is the Army’s largest land mass facility, and thus is an ideal environment to be the Defense Department’s leader in chemical and biological defensive testing, environmental characterization, and remediation technology testing. Such tests evaluate the reliability and survivability of all types of military equipment in a chemical or biological environment. In addition to Chem-Bio testing, Dugway also tests battlefield smokes and obscurants.

    MOO, IIRC, FWIW, etc.

    Weather: it has been raining, but not doing much snowing in that area:

    Last night the low was in the low 40's.

    Tonight and tomorrow night... the low will be in the 30's.

    25 hours and counting....

    A soldier who had been camping somewhere on this vast military range has been lost since Sunday night and Army and Tooele County searchers were looking for him late Monday.

    The military range is more than 800,000 acres and searchers are patrolling the exterior of Dugway's boundaries.

    It has done nothing but rain and rain for days now. Weird that there is camping allowed out there. Security is very tight. In fact there was recently a mysterious 12 hour lockdown over missing nerve agent.

    They found his flip flops but not his car? How do you lose your shoes and not know it? Gah! Dugway is not known for releasing much info to the public. No one, even our State Gov, has gotten a straight answer as to why they locked in 1000 employees for 12 hours and didn't notify anyone till after it was over.

    There was also just a show on a channel I cannot think of at the moment... I was just flipping through and the "Utah" part caught my attention.

    Whatever it was referred to Dugway as the new Area 51.

    I find it hard to believe that if they are continually, extensively searching... that they would find his flip flops... but not his car or his person.

    Unless, his flip flops are the only things out there to find.

    Below is a link to a msg board I go to for Dugway chatter when stuff is going on and no one official is talking. It's amazing how they keep the county sheriff and local LE in the dark. The sight has posted accurate info from time to time. Oh and it appears the flip flops don't make sense to other people either.

    Ingest a huge amount of salt before clicking on the below link.

    People are posting on his facebook wall voicing concern:

    http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...832832&sk=wall

    I think something stinks here.

    That is just my opinion.... maybe they DID find the car and we just haven't heard about it.

    If they really have not found him OR his car... I have an issue with that.

    If he ran out of gas, he would be near a road. Even without air support they could have searched the roads.

    Either they haven't searched them well enough or he and his car are not there.

    We can lose a soldier on our own base??? Come on.

    Very weird.

    This story is really strange. If it is on a military base, regardless of size, how can he not be located? Surely the Army has ways to do this? What if there was an enemy soldier on base? Could one go undetected? If so, I worry about the security of our bases! I just don't see why they don't have air patrols as well as foot patrols looking for him.

    The only other thing I can think of is that certain members of the military do not take soldiers disappearing very seriously. There was recently a local navy corpsman missing from my city. The Navy didn't want to do anything to help find him because they believed he was a deserter. In reality, he was suffering from PTSD but was successfully found by his wife, without any support from the Navy whatsoever. Perhaps they think Spc. Bushling has gone AWOL and that's why there is little support?

    The Awol issue has occurred to me as well.

    ,,,or perhaps someone else in the the army wants us to think he went AWOL and called in a false plea for help after planting the flip-flops?

    If there is an on-going stink about the recent shut-down, could he have had information about that?


    Has this guy made a habit of going camping all by himself? I can't imagine going camping anywhere without proper footwear for rough terrain. Did anyone know he was going camping?
