Find Richard Halliday


We need HELP.  Friday,  August 28,  2020,  Rob called Richard's commander in order to get in touch with Richard. We were worried because we hadn't heard from him. We knew that they may be in the field. Richard's phone went missing in the laundromat and he was using an old phone with only WiFi. The CPT. Informed us that Richard had been missing FOR 36 DAYS!!!!! since 24 July 2020. He informed us that he had gone AWOL, passed the 30 days and now had a federal warrant out for his arrest as a deserter! I had contact with Richard on the 23 July 2020. The leadership FAILED to contact us. It takes less than ten seconds to get Rob's cell phone number through Richard's FB, no friendship required. Even if Richard screwed up, the leadership FAILED! Where is the Army of ONE? Where is Richard? If he ran, why? Family wants to know. Taxpayers want to know. We are HEARTBROKEN!!! #findrichardhalliday Keep your faith in Richard. Richard: 1st in Basic Training,1st in AIT, 100% PT, Guidon Bearer,Promoted ahead of peers.

Contact Robert and Patricia Halliday 941 677-0060 leave a message.

Where is Richard? We need to look for him now. We need reward money to get more help. We need to create a crowd to attract attention, to create an echo to let Richard know we are here for him, he has a hope and a future. We need to travel and stay in El Paso. We need fliers and banners.

We would like to raise funds of $10,000. We need this help as soon as possible. 

We also need all the people we can get in El Paso. We need help sharing information.

!!UPDATE!! 2. Oct. 2020 form Patricia, die mother of Richard
TRANSPARENCY!! Because of consistent leads, today I will hire men to help Rob and Louix to go over the border and follow those leads more extensively. Eri helped me release $12k from the GOFUNDME: The campaign is not over. Please help us and give, any little bit helps. We are getting Ransom calls and messages. These have been given to the CID and so far have been hoaxes. We are not depending on the $25,000 from the USArmy, even though we are extremely, extremely, grateful for these funds, all and every bit of help. There is so much information at this time that, please God, I will share soon when we find Richard and know more of the truth. I can tell you that his US passport was in his room inventory this entire time and we just were told 2 days ago after working on the information "there were no passports found" for the last 71 days. I can tell you there is no evidence as of this date that Richard left on his own. I can tell you he only had a few weeks left in the USArmy. Thank you for giving, Please give to continue to uncover the truth, help make our Military stronger, support our Troops (during the rallies the look in the young soldiers eyes were like "hey, these people really love their son. They really love us.") We love our young VOLUNTARY Troops! 'Leave No Man Behind' 'ARMY OF ONE'
UPDATE-DAY71 for Richard-Day35 for us. Uninformed at home in Fl. until Rob called on DAY36. Thank you for continuing to SHARE and PRAY.

!!UPDATE!! 23. Sep. 2020

The timeline has been busted. CID investigation revealed the E4 lied. He was suppose to be with Richard, he wasn't. He said he was, it was a lie. He was not even on post. He has confessed. The GoFundMe Reward Funds speak volumes and Rob's six letters to the top also. We are learning how to return and deciding who to donate the money to if nobody comes forward. Please let's make a very loud voice, helps find Richard and also sows mustard seeds. Please share the GOFUNDME: Keep your faith in Richard.

Jan. 25, 2020 Richard was stopped by the police for not having his lights on. They made him blow... BAC . 0115 very very low - charged him with underage drinking (20 years old), he made a deal to attend classes & got record expunged.
March 28, 2020 Richard was detained at the US/Mexico border (He knew it was against orders - why was he at the border?) – was demoted to E1 - undergoing chapter review for withdrawal from the USArmy – only a week to few weeks from being out of the USArmy. Nobody called us because it is SOP not to inform family. (so much for pro-family military culture)

Richard was under escort, during this time Richard took a LYFT to buy a pistol but no ammo. (Did he feel threatened? We are a 2A family.)
On July 21, 2020 Richard made his last transaction from his bank: $60 withdrawal
On July 24, 2020 around 06:30 His E4 escort claims Richard went to get a drink from the water fountain and took off. (During extreme COVID Measures water fountains are covered or turned off.)
