KABUL (AP) — U.S. military spokeswoman says insurgents have captured an American soldier in eastern Afghanistan.

Capt. Elizabeth Mathias said the soldier has been missing since Tuesday. She said she could not provide further information.

Mathias said the military was using “all our resources to find him and provide for his safe return.”

The soldier was not taking part in the major military operation launched in the southern Taliban stronghold of Helmand early Thursday.
