    Canada - Andrew Fitzgerald, 19, Owen Sound, Ont, 13 Aug 2016

    Didn't see this one posted anywhere.

    Ground and air searches continued today for a 19-year-old soldier from Cape Breton who went missing in Ontario last weekend.

    The Owen Sound Police Service, Ontario Provincial Police and Canadian Armed Forces are searching for Pte. Andrew Fitzgerald, who was last seen around 4:30 a.m. ET Saturday at a Petro-Canada gas station in Owen Sound.

    Fitzgerald enlisted in the army in January and graduated Friday from a basic trade qualification course known as Development Period One Infantry, a Department of National Defence spokesman confirmed Tuesday.


    I hope he just needs some time to himself

    Where are you sweet-faced, young man? Did you hitch a ride back to the base at 4:30am? Did you get lost in the farmland/woods within those 30 kilometers between Owen Sound and CFB Meaford?

    (just a few lovely posts showing him with goofy, happy friends growing up in Cape Breton.)
