Fort Bragg officials have confirmed that a search is under way for a soldier who was reported missing since Memorial Day weekend.

Lt. Col. Allie Payne, a spokeswoman for the 18th Airborne Corps, said the soldier was reporting missing at an off-post National Park Service's site.

"We do have soldiers participating in assisting with searching for the service member," Payne said.

Fort Bragg officials are unable to release any additional details at this time.

An advisory from the National Park Service states that Enrique Roman-Martinez, 21, was last seen Friday at his campsite, near mile marker 46 on South Core Banks within Cape Lookout National Seashore.

Roman-Martinez was reported missing to park officials the next evening by friends when he was not at his camp all day, officials said.

He was last seen wearing a pair of blue shorts.

Officials said the search is ongoing, with Cape Lookout Rangers, the U.S. Coast Guard, and N.C. Marine Patrol searching the area.

Anyone who may have seen Roman-Martinez is asked to call the National Park Service at the Carteret County Dispatch office at 252-726-1911.
