A rumor surfaced Thursday regarding the possibility of a local Marine missing in action in the war against Iraq. That is not the case, The Times has learned.
It has been determined that there has been some miscommunication and misunderstanding involving this matter, according to a family member of the man rumored to be missing.
No military personnel from Clay County has officially been listed as MIA. The fact that the Marine's unit had not been heard from since March 19, is not considered unusual as that is the day the war in Iraq began.
