Escondido, Calif., police say a newlywed Marine from Long Island who went missing on Monday has been spotted trying to withdraw money from an ATM in Salina, Kan.
Police had been looking for 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Margaret McMahon-Reid and her husband, 22-year-old Marine Pfc. George Reid II, after they were placed on "unauthorized absence" status Tuesday for failing to report to duty.
Escondido police Lt. Bob Benton says Reid was spotted at the cash machine. The case is now being handled by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
Marine Lt. Neal Griffin says there were no signs of foul play in
the couple's Escondido home, rather it appears they packed their things and left.
Both joined the Marines 10 months ago and work as communication equipment operators. Neither has been deployed in combat with the Marines.
