An active U.S. soldier was found safe in Texas Friday after being reported missing when he didn’t board his flight earlier this week at O’Hare International Airport.
Matthew Segur, 39, flew into O’Hare on a British Airways flight on Monday, when his connecting flight to Dallas was canceled due to the severe winter weather, police said.
Segur was booked for an American Airlines flight to Dallas on Wednesday, but he never boarded that flight, and he had had no contact with family or friends since Monday, according to a missing person from Area North detectives.
He had just finished his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, the alert said.
Police said Segur’s girlfriend in Dallas reported him missing. No information was immediately available as to Segur’s whereabouts this week.
