The Taliban have released footage of a US soldier who went missing on June 30.

While the Pentagon has yet to name him, it has confirmed the authenticity of the video and condemned the captors for issuing propaganda. In the film the man is shown eating and talking about his fears and family. The date and location of when and where the video was made remains unclear. The US military said the soldier disappeared after walking off his base in eastern Afghanistan with three Afghan counterparts.
