James enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 2007 and served one year in Iraq and another year Afghanistan before getting out of the service in 2012. He returned home to Clementon after his tours of duty, with family saying Friday that James suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
CLEMENTON -- A borough man and former U.S. Marine who completed tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan hasn't been seen in nearly a week and his family is hoping to find him before his birthday on Saturday.
Lance James, who will be turning 29, was last heard from on Dec. 3, family said, adding that attempts to contact him via cell phone and social media have been unsuccessful.
"No one has seen or heard from him since Saturday. It is not like him to go this long without checking in," sister Jessica Hassan said Friday. "He is a local in the area and hangs out locally. He has not shown up to work and did not call out -- again very unusual for him."
Family said James -- who doesn't own a vehicle and has a 5-year-old daughter who lives with her mother -- went to the Hide-A-Way Tavern, in Clementon, Friday night and returned home afterward.
