More details revealed about missing soldier | 13 KXDF Fairbanks

FAIRBANKS, Alaska – It’s been over four days since anyone has seen 22-year-old Fort Wainwright soldier, Mason Heimer. Before work on Monday, Mason stopped for breakfast at McDonald’s off the Johansen Expressway and used his debit card. But since then, no one has seen or heard from him.

He owns a 2011 dodge ram with the license plate number JYF485. We spoke to Mason’s sister Kaytlee Friday, and she said he purchased his truck recently, so it could still have paper tags. She also indicated there’s a dent in the rear bumper, but they’re not sure which side it’s on, and there’s a scratch that looks like a bear claw on the left side of the bed.
