Navy Petty Officer goes missing in South Carolina

Update 12/9/15 Ferdin is safe. He posted the following on his Favebook page. “It may have come to your attention that I have been missing for some time now; for the trouble and worry I have caused, I apologize. I would like it to be known that I am safe and unharmed, and I will be turning myself in during the hour of eight A.M. For those who question why I am turning myself in, please note that I am currently in the Naval service and my absence was a violation of the Uniform Code Of Military Justice; it is behavior of which I am embarrassed and ashamed.

If I am socially inactive for a span of time, I am most likely in a hold status that allows little to no access to social media; I will attempt to enlist individual(s) to post on my behalf.

To all those who have shown me an Incredible wealth of Love, Care, and Support, I am unspeakably humbled and grateful; I am in your debt. It is my sincere wish that you all be in good health and station and that you experience great joy and success in all the good that you do.

I thank you, once again, and I hope you will be well.”
