Police in Massachusetts are searching for three Afghanistan National Army soldiers who were reported missing from Joint Base Cape Cod in Massachusetts on Saturday night. According to CBS News, the soldiers were last seen at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis and have still not been located since their disappearance on Sept. 20.
Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar were reportedly on Cape Cod to participate in the Regional Cooperation 2014, a training exercise set up to “gauge participants’ responses during a global peacekeeping operation.” The Boston Herald reports that the three soldiers arrived in Massachusetts on Sept. 11 and their training started on Sept. 17.
“The trio missing on Cape Cod were among 200 military professionals from six nations participating in an “senior professional command staff exercise.”
Massachusetts National Guard Col. James Sahady tells FOX News that the three missing Afghanistan National Army soldiers are not a threat to the public, but police are actively searching for them. Central Command and the Massachusetts State Police, as well as local police on Cape Cod, are all involved in the search to find the three missing soldiers.
