Metzger's situation remains a mystery

July 18, 2007

Valdosta --  Major Jill Metzger, a Moody airman who claimed to be abducted while deployed in Kyrgyzstan, has been put on the Temporary Disability Retirement List.

Meanwhile, the Department of Justice and the Air Force Office of Special Investigation are still looking into the circumstances involving her mysterious disappearance.

Major Metzger disappeared last September while shopping in Kyrgyzstan where she was wrapping up a four-month deployment.

She re-emerged four days later, and since then no clear story has surfaced about what happen to her. The Air Force has been silent on the issue.

She may remain on the disability list for up to five years while the Air Force continues the investigation or until evaluations determine if she should be permanently retired, discharged, or returned to active duty.
