Missing Afghan trainees identified

Mirwais Kohistani and Shirzad Rohullah disappeared during training

Two Afghan student airmen who were reported missing on Monday have been identified.

Authorities say Mirwais Kohistani and Shirzad Rohullah disappeared while being trained at a base near Valdosta.

The two students didn't report to their "regular maintenance training" with the 81st Squadron that day.
They have been stationed at Moody air force base since February.

The Air Force says they were screened before arriving in the U.S. It insists they pose no threat.

Valdosta Regional Airport confirmed police seized hours of surveillance video in connection with the men's disappearance.

A source familiar with the investigation says the men rented a car from the airport, but the base would not confirm.  However, they said they are investigating everything.
