Missing sailor’s car found in lot near Deception Pass bridge

More than a week after a 28-year-old sailor went missing, the Burlington Police Department isn’t releasing any additional information about the case.

The police department reported that Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Jean-Marc Faubert, an active-duty sailor at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, was last seen in the early morning of Friday, May 25.

His car was found at 5:45 a.m. in a parking lot on the Whidbey Island side of Deception Pass Bridge.

The last known time anyone spoke to him was at about 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, according to a press release.

Naval Health Clinic Oak Harbor’s commanding officer, Capt. Christine Sears, released a statement about Faubert.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Jean-Marc Faubert, his family, and loved ones,” she said. “We are hopeful for his safe return and encourage anyone with any information to contact the Burlington Police.”

Washington State Parks, the Coast Guard, Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Burlington Police Department were all involved in the investigation, according to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

Flaubert is a white male, approximately 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, bald, with green eyes and a muscular build. Faubert is believed to have been wearing black and white Nike basketball shoes, basketball shorts and a black or purple animé T-shirt, the Burlington police reported.

Anyone with information related to this case should call Burlington Police Detective Matt Brooks at 360-755-0921.
