A 2017 graduate of Bradley Central High School, and a former member of that school’s JROTC program, has been reported missing in Singapore while on duty with the U.S. Navy.
Seth Woods, 18, was reportedly last seen Monday at a Singapore 7-Eleven store, where he and a friend had disembarked their ship while in port.
The circumstances being reported and investigated say Woods’ friend went inside the store while Woods himself remained outside in a smoking area to vape. When the friend returned outside, Woods was reportedly gone.
Lt. Cmdr. Arlo Abrahamson, spokesperson for the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet in Singapore, said the Navy was aware of situation and is looking into the matter.
