Update: 04/25/2014 Police have located Gilbert Lee.

State Police are searching for a Fort Drum soldier after his car was found abandoned on Thursday.

22-Year old Gilbert J. Lee is from Greenville, South Carolina and is stationed at the base in New York.

Troopers found his vehicle in the southbound lane of I-81 in the Niagara County Town of Barker at around 10:30pm on April 24, 2014.  The vehicle was discovered about four miles north of the Castle Creek exit..

Authorities say Lee has not been in touch with anyone since then, behavior said to be unusual for him. Although he may be carrying a rifle, in a written release police say there is no reason to believe that he is a danger to anyone at this time.

Lee is 5-feet, 10-inches tall, weighs 155 pounds, has freckles, red hair, and green eyes. He has a tattoo of Latin letters on one forearm (possibly the left forearm).  At the time of his disappearance he had short hair and was clean shaven.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts, or even where he may be, is asked to call New York State Police in Binghamton at: (607) 775.1241.
