WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S military on Sunday said it had identified the remains of the last American service member unaccounted for in Iraq.

Staff Sgt. Ahmed Kousay al-Taie was an Army interpreter who was born in Iraq and lived in Ann Arbor, Mich. He was kidnapped at gunpoint in October 2006 when he sneaked off base on a motorcycle to visit his Iraqi wife in central Baghdad.

The Army issued a statement Sunday saying that the military’s mortuary in Dover, Del., had positively identified a set of remains as belonging to al-Taie.

Army officials said they had no further details on the circumstances surrounding his death or the discovery of his remains.
