Police and military officials are searching for a second day for three Afghanistan National Army officers who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base.

Lt. Col. James Sahady of the Massachusetts National Guard said Monday there were no details to report on the search.

U.S. military officials said the Afghan soldiers had been participating in a U.S. Central Command Regional Cooperation training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. They arrived at Camp Edwards on Sept. 11 and were last seen Saturday at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis.

The soldiers were reporting missing by base security personnel on Saturday night. They were identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

Military officials say the soldiers pose no threat to the public.
