New Jersey authorities are still trying to find a US Marine veteran who has been missing since earlier this month, with family members offering a $4,000 reward for correct information that leads to his discovery.
29-year-old Lance James has been missing since he was last seen at his Clementon apartment on December 2, according to Camden County authorities.
“Eighteen days and nothing at all still,” sister Jessica Hassan told NJ.com.
James -who did two tours of duty in the Middle East- was kicked out of the Hide-A-Way Tavern on the night of his disappearance, leaving his jacket and cell phone behind after police suggested he go home.
James’ sister said that he was last seen on CCTV footage within a block of his home and has not been into work at all. The New Jersey State Police are currently searching three area lakes for clues.
Having enlisted in 2007 and serving a year in both Iraq and Afghanistan, James was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder before leaving the Marines in 2012. He has a 5-year-old daughter who lives with his mother.
A crowdfunding page has raised funds to reward anyone who can offer information on James’ location, having raised $3,940 as of this morning.
“We are hopeful that offering a monetary reward for his whereabouts will help bring forth information that has not yet been provided,” the fundraiser page reads. “Lance has already been missing for 13 days and the weather is significantly declining. The need to get information quickly is paramount, we are hoping raising funds quickly will encourage those with information to come forward.”
James is described as approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, 180 pounds with brown hair, a red/brown beard, and tattoos. He was last seen wearing a white-colored undershirt, blue jeans and Timberland boots. He does not own an automobile.
