Seattle sailor missing in Afghanistan; Taliban claims capture


A West Seattle sailor missing in Afghanistan is the target of a massive search, The Seattle Times reported on its website today.

The Taliban claim to be holding the sailor hostage, but that has not been confirmed by NATO officials.

The Seattle Times — at the request of Navy officials, who cite security concerns — is not naming the missing sailor.

The Seattle sailor and a second sailor left their Kabul base Friday for a trip to the Charkh District of Logar Province, where the Taliban have a strong presence.

The Taliban claim to have captured one of the men and killed the second.

NATO officials confirm that they have recovered the body of one of the sailors. Family members have identified him as Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin McNeley, 30, according to The Denver Post and North County Times, which covers California’s San Diego County and cited an e-mail by McNeley’s father’s, George McNeley.

While not confirming the second sailor is being held hostage, NATO officials released a statement Tuesday that said the coalition “holds the captors accountable for the safety and proper treatment of our missing service member.”

The missing sailor’s family declined to comment to reporters on Monday.

The search by Afghan and international forces also has resulted in the detention of six people who either were directly responsible for or accommodated the attack on the sailors, according to Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a NATO spokesman.
