Last seen at the Skibo Road Holiday Inn Express in Fayetteville on Saturday, March 1, Simpson failed to report for duty with his unit Monday morning. There was no mention of anyone who might have been with Simpson at the hotel.
Local authorities are now reaching out to the public in hopes of locating Simpson or gaining additional information on his whereabouts.
He could be driving a 2011 dark gray Dodge Charger with North Carolina license plates: ACZ-4056.
Simpson is described as being 6 feet tall, weighing 144 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. Click here for photo.
Typically, unless foul play is suspected, the military doesn’t dedicate many resources to finding missing Soldiers. In the words of one Army officer, “They usually show up eventually.”
Anyone with information on Josiah Paul Simpson should call the Fayetteville, N.C. Police Department at 910-433-1856. Fort Bragg has yet to release an official statement.
Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux, also a Fort Bragg Soldier, went missing on April 16, 2012. Although her body was never found, she was eventually declared legally dead by the government.
