Hering, who is classified as "unauthorized absent" by the U.S. Marines, has still not been found. If he does not return to Camp Pendleton, Calif. by Monday he could face much more serious charges, West said. He also faces local charges, he said.
Powers gave sheriff's investigators some clues about where Hering may be hiding. The Marines are searching for him as well, West said.
