KABUL, Afghanistan — One of two US sailors missing in Afghanistan since last week — a 30-year-old father of two — was confirmed dead and his body recovered, a NATO spokesman said Tuesday.

The search continues for the other missing sailor, said Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a spokesman for NATO and US forces in Afghanistan.The two Navy personnel went missing Friday in the eastern province of Logar, after an armored sport utility vehicle was seen driving into a Taliban-held area. The Taliban have said they killed one of the two men in a firefight, captured the other and are holding him in a "safe place" where he will not be found.
