Another Marine Reported Missing in Yuma
For the second time in just over a month, a Marine stationed in Yuma has been reported missing.
The Naval Criminal Investigation Service and local police are investigating the disappearance of Corporal Joshua Barron, a Marine from Standish, Maine.
Barron, 22, who is stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma where he works as an engineer and mechanic, was last seen by his roommate on March 15.
Base officials don't suspect foul play.
Sergeant Jonathan Kyle was reported missing on February 14. Law enforcement agencies spent a lot of resources in their search for Ferguson -- search and rescue crews conducted air and ground searches in northwest Yuma close to the Colorado River. Border agents with canines aided in the search.
Kyle was missing for about two weeks before it was determined he'd gone AWOL. He then turned himself in.
Anyone with information about Barron's whereabouts are asked to call authorities.
