MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — New details emerged Thursday in the intense search for two Afghan student airmen missing from Moody Air Force Base, about 230 miles south of Atlanta, near Valdosta.
Authorities say Mirwais Kohistani and Shirzad Rohullah failed to show up at the base for training Monday.
“They’ve just gone missing. We’re not sure why,” said U.S. Air Force spokesman Ed Gulick.
Gulick said by phone law enforcement officials are tracing the steps the two men took the last five days.
Valdosta Regional Airport officials confirmed law enforcement seized hours of surveillance video in connection with the disappearance of the Afghan men. The base would not confirm reports the men rented a car there.
