(CBS) — A 20-year-old Oswego High School graduate is AWOL from his U.S. Army base in Colorado Springs, and his parents are trying to find him.
“He’d didn’t call home on Mother’s Day. That’s very unlike him,” Julie Domres says.READ MORE: First Illinois Case Of Omicron COVID-19 Variant Confirmed In Chicago Resident
Her son Danny has been AWOL since the day after Mother’s Day, May 11.
She says she and Danny’s father didn’t find out he was AWOL until a week later. They still hadn’t heard from Danny and called one of his friends in the Army, who told them Danny was not accounted for.
Then, she says, the family called his commanding officers.

“And they told us he was gone. Then they told us other troubles Danny had been having prior to that, getting in trouble with alcohol. We were just blown away, actually,” the mother says.
Julie Domres says she and Danny’s father believe Danny may be suffering from PTSD.
He came back from Afghanistan in January of last year. He was OK, at first, she says, then began “a gradual pulling away.”
