Officials say two male Afghan nationals being trained at an Air Force base in Georgia have gone missing.
In a news release issued Tuesday night, base officials said the two students didn’t report on Monday to “their regular maintenance training” with the 81st Fighter Squadron at Moody Air Force base, located near Valdosta, about 230 miles south of Atlanta.
The release notes that the two men have been at Moody since February 2015 and “were screened prior to their arrival in the United States more than a year ago.”
Officials say there are “no indications” the men pose a threat:
