A U.S. Army solider participating in a combat support training exercise at Fort Hunter Liggett in southern Monterey County went absent without leave Tuesday morning.
The soldier reportedly left the post in a Humvee without authorization at an unknown time, according to the Twitter account for the U.S. Army Reserve garrison near Jolon.
The unidentified solider was apprehended before 7 p.m. Tuesday by “civilian law enforcement in San Mateo.”
“AWOL soldier will be returned to the custody of military authorities while they complete an investigation on the incident,” another Tweet said. “No further information at this time.”
