The name may have changed, but the problems stay the same— yet another US Army Soldier has gone missing from the Fort Hood/Fort Cavazos area.

Spc. Craig Chamberlain 23, was last seen leaving his home around 6 in the evening on Monday of last week, authorities report.

The Killeen resident is a member of the 704th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, 79th Ordnance Battalion.

According to ABC7, Spc. Chamberlain’s wife, Cam, told a local media station that her husband has been suffering from depression for some time.

“Myself and his family haven’t seen or heard from him since Monday,” she said.

The Army has been somewhat tight-lipped on the matter, although an official spokesperson did give out a statement.

“III Armored Corps has initiated an ‘Absence Status Unknown’ (AUN) case for Chamberlain and is working closely with the Army Criminal Investigation Division and local law enforcement agencies to locate the Soldier,” the statement read. “The III Armored Corps is committed to the welfare and safety of its Soldiers and their families.”

Previously known as Fort Hood, Fort Cavazos has an infamous history of Soldiers going missing. In recent years, attempts to find certain missing Soldiers led to the discovery of the bodies of other Soldiers who had also gone missing.

In 2020, the installation averaged 129 felonies, and 39 nine soldiers either died or went missing.

“The numbers are high here. They are the highest in most cases for sexual assault, harassment, murders, for our entire formation in the U.S. Army,” then-Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told Stripes after he visited the post in August of 2020.
