The chief of surgery at the veterans hospital in Spokane was reported missing Monday after he didn’t show up for work.

Dr. John Marshall, 49, started his morning like most of his workdays with morning exercise at the YMCA in central Spokane. Security footage shows him leaving the building after 5:30 a.m. His wife, Dr. Suzan Marshall, said he usually leaves for a jog and heads back to get ready for work about 6 a.m. so he can arrive at the hospital by 7 a.m.

When he didn’t show up at work at the Mann-Grandstaff Veterans Affairs Medical Center, staff notified his family.
"Marshall served in the Marines for five years before becoming an Army surgeon, Suzan Marshall said. He served in the Army from 2004 to 2009. Marshall has worked at the VA since 2010 and was named the acting chief of surgery a year ago. Suzan Marshall is also a veteran and a surgeon."
