Missing Hawaii-based sailor's parents get text: 'I'm alive and I love you'

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The parents of a U.S. Navy sailor who's been missing since Sunday got a text from his phone Tuesday, saying, "I'm alive and I love you."

That's according to Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which also said that the sailor still hasn't been found.

Shaun Palmer, based out of Marine Corps Base Hawaii, failed to report for duty on Sunday.

His mother said he was last seen outside a bar in Waikiki following an apparent altercation.

The military has filed a missing persons report with the Honolulu Police Department, but police say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his disappearance.

Palmer is a hospital corpsman assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

Anyone with information is asked to call authorities.
