[Reuters]–Two American volunteers who were fighting Russian troops in Ukraine have been missing for a week and are concerned about detention. The family revealed.

The last contact from the two was on the 8th, and they have not returned from the operation near Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine.

According to family members and a spokesman for the State Department, reports of being taken prisoner of the Russian army have not been confirmed.

If detained, he would be the first American to be taken prisoner in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The National Security Council’s Kirby Strategic Public Relations Coordinator said the government would do everything it could to rescue if the press was true.
