GATESVILLE, TX (KXXV) -

A sailor from the Gatesville area is missing in Norfolk, Virginia. 

Kathy Brady's son, Gage Brady, has been missing since June 11. 

"It was that evening around 6:30, if I'm not mistaken, that we talked, and you know, always end with 'I love you'... that I'm thankful for," Kathy Brady said.  

After graduating from Gatesville High School in 2015, Gage Brady joined the Navy. 

"He's wanted to be a solider or a sailor or in the military since I remember," Brady added. 

He was last seen Sunday night leaving the ship in Virginia around 10:30.

According to his mother, his phone was found outside a convenience store near the base, but the person who found the phone responded in a group chat before blocking everyone and apparently keeping the phone. 

"My husband and I, feel so useless and so worthless in this situation," Brady said. 

Since he's been missing, Gage's debit card has been used in Kentucky and then again in Missouri, but it's unknown if Gage is the one using the card. 

"I gotta know he's okay. I wanna hear him tell me he loves me or even fusses at me, I don't care," Brady added. 

Wherever he is...his mother wants him to tell him. 

"I love you, and I miss you. And your Dad and I are, we're trying to be strong until we see you again. We need you to come home and contact us," Brady pleaded.   

The Brady's told News Channel 25 they will continue to leave the light on each night until their son returns home. 

According to the Norfolk Police Department, Gage Brady was reported missing on June 13. 

The report stated that Brady left naval base at 10:30 p.m. on June 11 and was never seen again. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service contacted the police after Brady did not return. 

Brady has tattoos on his arm and drives a black 2011 Chevy Impala. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
