The Afghan soldiers disappeared on Saturday night and were found on Monday.

Three Afghan soldiers who had been reported missing were found Monday in Canada, US media reported.

US law enforcement officials told WCVB television that the men were taken into custody in Canada, in the Niagara Falls area, very close to the border.

The three soldiers, identified as Mayor Mohammad Arash and Captains Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Noorullah Aminyar, had disappeared from a shopping center Saturday night in the northern Cape Cod city.

They were part of a group of 14 Afghan soldiers who had come for a week of training at a US military camp.
