Three more Afghan soldiers training in Georgia have gone missing officials confirmed to 11Alive, Thursday. There are now seven total missing military students in September from bases across the U.S.

Now 11Alive is speaking with government officials on continuing efforts to locate these missing soldiers. The three missing from Georgia came to Fort Benning and Fort Gordon. They were part of a Pentagon training program that works with America’s allies.

And this is not the first time Afghan soldiers from this effort have taken off. The U.S. Department of Defense said seven, overall, went missing while in the U.S. in September.

Four of them disappeared over Labor Day weekend. Two were from Fort Benning near Columbus, Ga., one other apparently left a base in Virginia and still another from Arkansas. The weekend of Sept. 17 and 18 was when three more took off.

Two were in Missouri and a third came from Georgia’s Fort Gordon near Augusta. These soldiers are international military students. A video on Fort Benning’s website shows soldiers from other countries working with the U.S. military.
