Airforce Major Jill Metzger, stationed at Manas Air Base, was shopping in a Kyrgyzstan mall with friends when she disappeared.

From CNN:

(CNN) — A U.S. Air Force officer is missing after a trip to a shopping mall in Kyrgyzstan, a U.S. military statement said Wednesday.

Maj. Jill Metzger, with the 376th Air Expeditionary Wing, was last seen shopping at the Zum Shopping Center with others from the Manas Air Base when she disappeared on Tuesday, the statement said.

“Major Metzger was last seen wearing a green sweater and blue jeans,” the statement said.

“She has blonde hair and blue eyes. She is in excellent athletic condition.”

Military Web sites describe Metzger as a top-flight marathoner.

Both the Kyrgyz police and the US military are searching for her:

BISHKEK, September 6, 2006 (RFE/RL) — Kyrgyzstan’s Interior Ministry and National Security Service say they have launched a joint operation to locate the U.S. air servicewoman who disappeared on September 5 in Bishkek.

The woman, who has been identified as Major Jill Metzger, is working at the U.S. Manas military air base, near Bishkek.

Manas air base public affairs officer Ann Carpenter told RFE/RL’s Kyrgyz Service that Metzger disappeared while shopping at Bishkek’s main department store (TsUM) with other U.S. base members.

“The [U.S.] 376th Air Expeditionary Wing base officials are working with the U.S. Embassy and local officials to locate the servicemember as soon as possible,” Carpenter added.

The U.S. Embassy in Bishkek has issued pictures of a blonde woman as part of the search operation.

Let’s hope she’s found quickly.

Update: Maj. Metzger was supposed to return home on Thursday and went to the mall to buy souvenirs for her family.
