A US soldier in Baghdad was reported missing late Monday, the US military said. The missing service member is an Army translator, and the initial report is that he may have been abducted, said a military official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity because the information was not cleared for release. "Coalition and Iraqi Security forces immediately responded to attempt to locate the soldier. The search is ongoing," the military said in a statement that gave no other details. The last time any US soldiers were reported missing was in June, when one was killed in an insurgent attack at a checkpoint by a Euphrates River canal, 20 kilometers south of Baghdad. The two soldiers listed as missing had been abducted during the attack and later found dead, their bodies brutalized, the military said. One of the soldiers had been beheaded.
