Marine Lance Corporal at Large After Fleeing Camp Lejeune

A Camp Lejeune Marine is wanted by authorities after fleeing from the North Carolina base Thursday afternoon, officials said Friday evening.

Lance Cpl. Shawn M. Miller, a field artillery cannoneer with 2nd Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, was last seen around 6 p.m. Thursday in Jacksonville, the town outside Lejeune, according to a news release from 2nd Marine Division.

Officials told that Miller has not been formally charged, but would not otherwise characterize the circumstances that resulted in his being ordered to pretrial confinement. The release stated that Miller has active warrants in the state of North Carolina.

No description of Miller has been released, nor has information on whether he is believed to be armed. A spokesman with Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which is handling the investigation into Miller, told the investigation was ongoing and no other information was immediately available.

“If you believe you know of Lance Cpl. Miller’s whereabouts, please contact local law enforcement officials,” 2nd Marine Division said in the statement.
