Massive search for missing marine

Authorities fear the marine may be suicidal They've spent hours looking for him -- on the ground and from the air.

Marines and rescue crews are searching for 21 year-old Lance Corporal Stanley Bowsley -- a Camp Lejeune Marine originally from Arizona who just returned from Iraq.

His car was found abandoned near the woods on Union Bethel Church Road, which is just a few miles north of Hampstead.

Dozens of marines and rescue crews have been searching for him. The search was scaled down overnight but will resume at daybreak Wednesday.

Investigators fear Bowsley may try to kill himself. They tell News Six they fear he is suicidal because he broke up with his girlfriend and is afraid his company will be sent back to war.
