Mary Burazer got the telephone call she'd been waiting two weeks for around 7:30 Thursday night.
"Hey, Mom."
"Paul, it's you," Mary Burazer told her son when he called.
...
"I know, I know," Mary Burazer recalled her son saying."I wanted to see some friends.I just wanted to get away."
The phone call ended two weeks' worth of worry for the Burazer family.
The family reported to police that Burazer, 25, was missing on July 19.
Burazer served in the Army and spent 11 months in Iraq as a military cook.He came back to civilian life depressed, a big concern for his family, they said.
Burazer called home around 7:30 p.m. Thursday from a pay phone in Clarksville, Tenn., Burazer said.He's coming home this weekend with his aunt, who stopped in Clarksville on the way down to see the Burazer family in Mount Holly.
Burazer told his mother he was visiting friends at Fort Campbell, a military base near Clarksville.
"Two weeks later he's with his aunt in Clarksville, Tenn., at the Holiday Inn," Burazer said.
After speaking with Burazer, his mother called the Mount Holly Police to let them know of her son's status.They contacted the Clarksville Police, who verified Burazer was with his aunt.Police removed his file from the missing person list.
The family is looking at getting help, Mary Burazer said.
"We're just glad to have him back," Burazer said."We're just going to take it from here."
Burazer said all the prayers led her son to call home and, for that, she is thankful.
"I can't thank the Mount Holly Police Department enough for giving us so much time.They were so patient with us," Burazer said."We're so grateful for all our family and friends.

As of Friday, mother Mary Burazer still hadn¡¦t heard from her youngest son, but was hopeful that he would turn up this weekend.
¡§I wake up with a lot of optimism,¡¨ Burazer said. ¡§Nights are hard, especially when you dream.¡¨
The 25-year-old Iraq War veteran was supposed to go to the family¡¦s house the night of July 19, but never showed up.
Burazer told his older brother, also his roommate, that he was going to his family¡¦s home around 9:30 p.m. July 19.His brother called the house the next morning to see if his sibling had spent the night.
¡§We were worried because two other times he just left for the day,¡¨ Mary Burazer said.
One of those times Burazer took the Blue Ridge Parkway and called when he came to Virginia.
On July 13, he drove down to Columbia, S.C., and his mother called him and told him to come back home.
This time was different
¡§Bad things can happen in the wee hours,¡¨ Burazer said.
¡§He didn¡¦t leave with a lot of money,¡¨ Burazer said. ¡§He didn¡¦t have a change of clothes.¡¨
The family found a packed duffel bag in his room.The duffel bag also contained his cell phone charger.
Burazer graduated from East Gaston High School in 2000 and served three years in the Army as a military cook.Eleven months of that time was spent in Iraq.
He didn¡¦t know when he joined the Army that he¡¦d be going to Iraq, his mother said.The family joked with him that it would be ¡§Paul¡¦s Excellent Iraqi Adventure.¡¨
¡§He wasn¡¦t in any combat operations,¡¨ Burazer said. ¡§There was only a few skirmishes at all.¡¨
The war in Iraq changed him, Burazer said.He found it hard to get back into civilian life. He also came back depressed.Burazer believes that is the main reasons he left home.
¡§I guess he felt like he wasn¡¦t going anywhere,¡¨ Burazer said.
Burazer attended Gaston College for a semester in 2005 and attended Central Piedmont Community College before going into the army.He was planning to go back to college, Burazer said.He had even registered for Belmont Abbey College¡¦s adult degree program this fall.
¡§He just felt directionless lately,¡¨ Burazer said. ¡§He felt like he didn¡¦t know what he was going to do with the rest of his life.¡¨
...
After Burazer had been gone five days, the family contacted Select Investigations, a private investigating firm.
...
Burazer had worked at the Eddy Restaurant and Bar at the National Whitewater Center since February as a dishwasher and preparation cook, his mother said.
