26-year-old Iraq War vet missing since March 27

WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- The search continues for a 26-year-old Iraq veteran missing since March 27.

According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, Chase Tyler Massner was last seen at his friend's house on Farmbrook Lane in Kennesaw. He was reported missing missing on Friday by his wife and mother.

Massner served a year in Iraq and came back three years ago. His wife says he has been through some tough times since returning from the Middle East.

"Since he got back, he's had ups and downs with struggling with his mental stability," Amanda Massner said.


Amanda said Chase had reached a low point late last week and went away to visit his friend "to get some space."

"We've all been out for hours and hours with flashlights, just walking basically trying to see if we see him," Amanda said.

Chase was last seen wearing a red sweatshirt and khaki pants. He is 6'2" and weighs around 175 pounds. He has tattoos on his arm of a treasure chest, an angel and the name Massner. He has a chest tattoo of two roses on the right pectoral muscle.

"No matter what it is that he is going through right now, his family loves him. No matter what and we are here for him and we just want peace of mind that he is okay and that he is safe and we want to help him and we went to be with him and we want to get through this together," Amanda said.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office at 678-493-4200.
