A South Carolina soldier has been reported missing from his Sandy Run home since Saturday.
Calhoun County Sheriff Thomas Summers says 26-year-old Sgt. Robert Larson suffered a traumatic brain injury while serving in Iraq when a vehicle he was riding in hit an IED, or improvised explosive device in 2005. He is now stationed at Fort Jackson.
His wife Pamela Larson told deputies that Sgt. Larson left their Midlands home after working on his Jeep all day. She says he has not answered his phone or sent any text messages since he left, which she says is unusual.
Pamela told WIS-TV that she is worried he may have gone off-road driving.
Authorities say Larson was driving a Black 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a “Purple Heart” license plate PH5752.
