Mother of missing vet pleads for suspect to turn himself in

He is suspected of covering up Chase Massner's death.

The mother of a missing, presumed dead, Iraq War Veteran is pleading with the suspect in this case to "do the right thing" and turn himself in.

Stephanie Cadena took to Facebook saying, “Yes it’s 3 a.m. and NO I’m not asleep! Brad Clement, for God’s sake, STOP! You spoke to me face to face and even hugged me! If you’re not guilty face us and show us the truth! You love your Mother and Chase Massner loved me! But Chase is no longer here to speak, you are! Please step up and do the right thing!!!

Brad Clement was charged this week with covering up the apparent death of Chase Massner.

Human remains were found at Clement's former home on Farmbrook Trail in Kennesaw. The 31-year-old agreed to turn himself in to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center Friday, but changed his mind. He's been on the run ever since.

Clement is the last person to have seen Massner alive back in March of 2014.

Those remains haven't been positively identified as Massner.

Amanda Massner hasn't spoken publicly about her missing husband in years.

11Alive went back into our archives to find the original interview we conducted with her just two weeks after Chase disappeared.

"I just have to know something. Or it's never gonna get any better," Amanda Massner said at the time.

Looking back on that interview, it's hard not to notice that the family was just feet from where Chase's presumed body would later be found.

"The last subdivision he was seen in was Farmbrook," said Amanda, "right across the street from here."

Massner's family tells us the Iraq War veteran had struggled returning to civilian life. That March night, he stayed with Brad Clement, a man he hadn't known long.

Brad Clement is believed to be driving a 2003 blue Honda Civic. If you see him, you're asked to call 911.
