TIFTON - A Tifton family is hoping to hear from a loved one stationed in Kuwait.

20-year-old Rodolfo Chavez left the marine Base in Camp Lejeune North Carolina for Camp Fox, Kuwait two months ago. He hasn't been heard from since. He's part of the Second Maintenance Batallion. His mother realizes communication overseas is difficult, but she keeps sending him care packages each week anyway.

"All I can think of is him over there, all I ask is he comes home safe," Rodolfo's mother Ernestine Chavez said.

Chavez graduated from Tift County High School two years ago, and was a member of the soccer team. He has two younger brothers in Tifton middle and elementary schools.
