For Becky McGinnis, the first two weeks of September have been a nightmare.
Her boyfriend, who served as a U.S. Navy SEAL for 18 years, has not contacted her since August 27. He was last seen near Chollas Lake Park, according to San Diego police. Officers found his car in La Jolla on Sunday, September 3.
"We just want to find him,” said McGinnis. “We have a little information on anything.”

John Surmont, 45, has struggled with trauma related to his military service, McGinnis told NBC 7 Monday.

San Diego Police confirmed they are actively looking for Surmont, a veteran of U.S. Navy SEAL Team 3 and a father of three. The VA is cooperating with the police department on their investigation. 

People who served in the SEALs with him confirmed the community is conducting private searches. 

Surmont’s ex-wife got a call from Surmont on August 31 saying he was in a "rough place" in Los Angeles, police said.
