ALERT: Missing Marine!!

Missing Marine makes phone call

'CHARLOTTE COUNTY: The family of missing Marine Eric Hall says the young man made a phone call to a friend in Jeffersonville, Indiana early Wednesday morning.'

'Hall has been missing for nearly three weeks. His family says he was wounded in Iraq and is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.'

There is a video report at the News Channel 2 site as well

Another report about Eric explains more of possibly why he disappeared.

'Eric Hall, 24, left his aunt's house in Deep Creek on Feb. 3 during a flashback to his service in Iraq. He was injured while on foot patrol in Fallujah in June 2005; an improvised explosive device killed a man he was with and mangled his thigh. Eric was medically retired from the Marine Corps, where his mother, Becky Hall, said he had planned to make his career. A few weeks before his disappearance, he moved from Indiana to Florida for a fresh start.'

'Eric seemed to believe enemies were out to get him the day he disappeared, relatives said. He had previously been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and received some treatment from the Veteran's Administration.'
