Missing Moody Major

A local Air Force officer is missing overseas. MAJ Jill Metzger was scheduled to return to Moody Air Force Base Thursday.

Metzger has been stationed in the former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan near the Chinese border. She was last seen by coworkers at a shopping center in the capital city of Bishkek.

"At Moody we're a primary support role helping out the family who’s back here at the United States. I kept in daily contact with Mr. and Mrs. Metzger up in North Carolina."

Metzger is a personnel chief for the 376th Air Expeditionary Wing, stationed at Manas Air Base, Kyrgyzstan.

Air Force officials there say they're in the process of reviewing security footage and phone records for clues to her whereabouts.
