The two men are believed to have driven into a hostile area after visiting a local market in Logar. The Taliban said one man was dead, and Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin McNeley's body was found this week. McNeley was from Wheatridge, Colorado, 30-years-old and the father of two small children.

It was believed Newlove was captured and held by the terrorists for a prisoner exchange. More as details become available.
