Claim: A U.S. Army soldier named Ian Henderson is missing.
Example:[Collected via Facebook, October 2013]
This is my son Ian Henderson he is missing since Thursday Oct 10th. He was last seen boarding a flight in Phoenix to Atlanta, Ga. The airline confirmed that he was on that flight but he never made it to his next flight to South Carolina. Please keep posting this picture he is a missing person and an Army Soldier.
Origins: On 13 October 2013, Tami Henderson launched an plea to help find her son, 18-year-old U.S. Army Pvt. Ian Henderson, who had been home on leave after shattering his elbow in a military exercise and was supposed to have boarded a flight from Phoenix to Atlanta on 9 October 2013, catching a connecting flight to South Carolina to resume basic training at Fort Jackson. But four days later Ian still had not arrived at his destination or made contact with his mother, and Phoenix police determined through viewing surveillance footage that Ian Henderson had never made the first leg of his flight; instead, the video showed Ian exiting the TSA line in Phoenix, running through the airport, and jumping into the passenger's side of a departing car.
On 14 October 2013, however, Tami Henderson reported to a local news outlet that Ian had been located in Arizona and was safe.
