A US military spokesman said Tuesday there had been no word on the fate of a US Army soldier reported missing in Baghdad, as troops continued door-to-door searches in the central Karradah district. US and Iraqi forces threw a security cordon around Karradah on Monday night and Iraqis seeking to pass through the downtown area on Tuesday were turned away at roadblocks. Army Kiowa OH-58 reconnaissance helicopters were seen repeatedly circling the area in pairs. US soldiers patrolling Karradah showed photocopies of the man's photograph to residents in a search for leads. The missing soldier's name and other personal details have not been officially released, although American troops who raided Baghdad's al-Furat TV on Monday said they were looking for an abducted American officer of Iraqi descent who went to join family members in Karradah.
