It’s been five days since Dr. Cherie Guidry last saw her Navy husband, OS1 Nick Guidry.
She told him “goodbye” at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3, and left for her veterinary clinic in Lynwood, Washington.
According to the timeline posted by Dr. Guidry, Nick put their daughter on the school bus at 9 a.m. and arrived at his job at the Navy Recruiting Station at 2601 4th Avenue in Seattle around 10:30 a.m. His car was left at the metro-bus park-and-ride in Everett, which was normal for his daily commute into town.
Shortly afterwards, Guidry was told by his commander that there was a Navy-related investigation going on that involved him, however, it had nothing to do with any illegal activities.
From there, things seem to unravel as Guidry withdrew $2,000 from the family vacation fund and likely took a Greyhound bus to Oakland, Calif. His phone pinged for its last time from there at 6 p.m. Wednesday evening.
Greyhound confirmed that he had purchased a ticket.
There has been no credit card or debit card activity; nor have there been any phone calls or text messages since Dec. 2.
Neither the family nor the Navy have reason to believe there is foul-play involved in this situation, however, as a formality, Guidry is listed as AWOL until he can be located.
Guidry, 5’-8”, 190 pounds, is believed to be wearing civilian clothes.
Online speculation has been rampant, not only on Guidry’s possible whereabouts but also reasons for his disappearance, up to and including covert military activities.
The family would like to stress they have given authorities all the facts and an accurate timeline as they know it; the rest is purely speculation.
Anyone with information on OS1 Guidry should call the Seattle Police Department at 206-625-5011.
Examiner's Note: Missing persons tend to gravitate towards things that are familiar, for Nick Guidry that might be using a base commissary, attending a familiar church, even eating at a favorite restaurant. The military typically doesn't expend many resources on missing personnel unless criminal activity is involved.
