"This is my son on the left. “Branden Oliver” he is 30 yoa. His buddy on the right is Bryce Burk. Their duty station was Kileen Tx. I just discovered that a week prior to Thanksgiving my son came up missing. His apartment is completely intact with all his clothes and personal items still there. He’s been in touch with no one over the course of 2 1/2 months. This picture was taken on his second tour in Iraq and unfortunately has come home with PTSD. He has stopped taking his medication for the PTSD symptoms. our family is very concerned for his well-being. He was living in Kewanee Illinois prior to his disappearance. I am pleading that this post goes viral to help me find my son. He has closed all of his social media accounts and has turned off his cell phone. He’s not mentally stable and we are praying for a safe return. Please share this post!"
