KABUL: A helicopter belonging to an international military contractor has gone missing in Afghanistan, officials said Thursday.
The helicopter for Supreme Global Service Solutions has been missing since late Tuesday, said NATO spokesman Maj. Steven Coll. A Kabul representative for the Virginia-based company declined to comment and press officers elsewhere could not be immediately reached. Supreme supplies food and logistics services military bases across Afghanistan.
Police and international military forces were searching for the craft in eastern Logar province's Kharwar district, spokesman Din Mohammad Darwirsh said. He said they did not have any confirmation of a crash and no one had seen any wreckage.
"It's missing, but that's all we know right now," Coll said. He confirmed that NATO forces are helping in the search. He said he could not provide information about how many people were aboard or their nationalities.
