Four other soldiers remain missing. The soldiers were swept downstream when their Light Medium Tactical Vehicle overturned at the Owl Creek Tactical low-water crossing and East Range Road. The soldiers are from the 3rd Battalion, 16th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. Three soldiers were rescued from the water earlier near the vehicle and are in stable condition.
