Army officials at Fort Carson say a 28-year-old Fort Carson soldier has been missing since Tuesday and is now listed as AWOL.

We were told PFC Roy Mason II, was assigned to the Warrior Transition Unit, and did not report to Tuesday morning's accountability formation and is listed as absent without leave.

An alert was sent out Tuesday for Mason.

According to Army officials he rented a car from Enterprise. The car is a 2008 red Chevy Cobalt, license plate number CO 253SOX.

Mason is 6 feet tall, weighs 195 pounds and has brown eyes and hair.

There is potential that the soldier is in possession of a firearm, however there is no indication that he is a threat to the general public.

Maj. Gen. Mark A. Graham, commanding general, at Fort Carson, said, "Please assist us in locating Pfc.Mason and bringing him back safely to his unit, friends and family. We are very concerned about this soldier and my heart goes out to his family and friends who are right now wondering where he is."

Mason has been in Warrior Transition Unit since April 1, 2009. WTU is a unit for mentally and or physically wounded soldiers. Fort Carson officials tell 11 News, WTU is for wounded warriors that were either injured while in combat or are unable to perform normal soldier activities, which keeps them from deploying.

Before being re-assigned to WTU, Mason was assigned to 1-12 Infantry, 4BCT, 4ID, which is deploying right now to Afghanistan.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts or who may have spotted him is encouraged to call the Fort Carson Military Police at 526-2333.
