ORIGINAL STORY 

CRESTVIEW, Fla. (WKRG) – Crestview Police are looking into the disappearance of a U.S. Army Special Forces Sgt. who has been missing since Friday. Investigators say 23-year old Sgt. Greco Antoine Tucker Jr. did not report for duty on Monday morning. He’s a member of the U.S. Army 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne). When police checked out his home in Crestview, they found no signs anyone had forced their way inside and everything seemed as it should be. Sgt. Tucker’s 2014 four-door white Dodge Charger SE was not at the home.

“It is possible he left the area,” Crestview Police Commander Ray Harp said. “He hasn’t reported to work, or to family or friends. It is very out of character for him.”

According to the 7th Group, Sgt. Tucker is “an exemplary soldier”. 

The Crestview Police Department does not have a photo of Sgt. Tucker. If you have seen his white Dodge Charger with Florida tag 044-QCF, call the Crestview Police Department at 850.682.3544.
