Columbia - New information tonight on a plane crash in Colombia. A South Georgia man is one of three missing people.

On February 13th, the plane went down in an area dominated by rebels. An American and a Colombian soldier were shot and killed. Three others, including the South Georgian, were captured.

A US Department of State spokesperson says reliable sources claim a terrorist group is holding them captive, but there's no confirmation of their whereabouts or well-being.

The men were working for the US government to help control drugs and terrorism in Columbia.

Officials have not released their names.
