Soldier captured in Afghanistan may have left base alone

Fellow soldiers first noticed that the private first class was missing on Tuesday, when he didn't show up for morning formation at a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan. Thursday, the U.S. military said they believe now that the soldier was captured by Taliban militants, the first time that's happened since U.S. troops arrived in Afghanistan eight years ago.
