NC - Michael Kirkpatrick, 29, Fayetteville, 19 July 2015
MISSING FAYETTEVILLE ARMY VETERAN'S CAR FOUND NEAR ASHEVILLE
A missing Fayetteville veteran's car has been found north of Asheville, but there was no sign of the 29-year-old.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said deputies in Madison County found Michael Kirkpatrick's 2006 Scion Tuesday. The area is in the Pisgah National Forest.
Kirkpatrick was last seen on July 19, and was reported missing by his roommate."When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

"Loved ones describe him as suffering from PTSD."
Please be okay Michael.

He was last seen July 19 and reported missing by his roommate? Wonder when the roommate reported him missing? I hate hearing about these cases where our Military are diagnosed with PTSD. Jmo#prayfororlando

I was hoping to find an MSM source and found this instead.
I think the site is basing that headline on the FB comment shown in the video below.
NC mom waits, hopes that missing veteran is found

Certainly is good news, and I'm hoping it is truly Michael posting on social media. His mother's FB is easily found and I don't see any news in the public posts on it either.

A missing Fayetteville veteran has been located hiking on the Appalachian Trail.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says it closed the case when detectives learned Michael Kirkpatrick's parents heard from him and sent him money and clothes.
