More details about a Marine accused of staging his own disappearance in the Colorado mountains.

Sheriff's officials say 21 year old Lance Corporal Lance Hering and his friend made up a story about Hering injuring himself during a hike in late August and disappearing before help arrived.

Hering was on leave from Iraq when he disappeared.

He was due back at Camp Pendleton, California, September 18th.

According to court documents released Thursday, Hering's girlfriend, Kaley Sutton, told authorities Hering once came up with a plan to fake his death and assume a new identity in another country.

He planned to use insurance money by naming his brother as a beneficiary and having the money funneled to him.

But Hering's father, Lloyd Hering, says Lance Hering's brother knew nothing of the plot.
