Approved For Release 2007/11/21: CIA-RDP83MOO914R002100150001-6 Central Intelligence Agency OEXA 82-1317/a Honorable Mark Andrews Committee on Appropriations United States Senate Washington, D.C. 20510 Dear Senator Andrews: M 6 MAY' . This acknowledges your letter of 6 May 1982 and the enclosed photographs of a missing American citizen, who is believed to be AWOL frc'^l the U.S. Army, stationed in Germany. As I am sure you are aware, the tasking of intelligence personnel to locate missing persons in these situations normally is outside of our carefully defined area of responsibility. We can and do, however, cooperate with other U.S. Gov- ernment components abroad where we obtain information concerning their personnel, especially where the safety of any person may be in jeopardy, as appears could be the case here. I am informed that there is a Status of Forces Agreement in effect between U.S. military authorities and a host government where our troops are stationed, which governs how matters such as this are to be handled. .I believe you would be best served by writing directly to The Honorable John 0. Marsh, Jr., Secre- tary of the Army, Washington, D.C., for an opinion on how this Agreement may affect situations such as this. In addition, the State Department has, in its Consular Affairs section, an Office of Citizens Services Emergency Center. Both the State and Army Departments are experienced in handling these matters and should be contacted directly for assistance. Of course, our overseas personnel are aware they have a responsibility to report information which they may acquire pertaining to missing soldiers abroad. You can be assured if we come across any such information we will pass it to the appropriate authorities. However. t State and the Army must play the primary role to assist in locating I wish them well. Sincerely, Enclosures /,V/ A am J. Casty William J.

A lot of pressure has been placed on this family since their son disappeared and I was hoping that your offices in Germany could be sent the pictures with the idea of possibly trying to locate this young man so that he can be returned to his family. I know that there is a strong possibility that he is on drugs and could. be in some serious trouble. I would appreciate anything that you can do to help find him.
