Air Force Major Jill Metzger went missing in Kyrgyzstan's capital city of Bishkek. Metzger was last seen while at a shopping mall on Sept 5th. An extensive search is under way by the Air Force and local authorities.

"A 22-member task force of U.S. special agents and their support crew are working closely with local authorities using every available means to find information concerning her whereabouts."

Metzger is attached to the 376th Air Expeditionary Wing at Manas Air Base. While checking around for this story, I found an older story about her. She's a marathoner.

No matter how you look at it, this doesn't look good. Not a friendly place. Pray for her.

***OP-FOR has an update from the local govt authorities. However, I'm not buying it.
