SAN ANTONIO (MCT) — The Army said Thursday it has completed an investigation into Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's disappearance from a base in Afghanistan five years ago.

The report by Brig. Gen. Kenneth Dahl is being reviewed by commanders, but is not being released, Army spokesman Wayne Hall said.

Hall said the review process likely would be lengthy, and that “the Army's priority is ensuring that our process is thorough, factually accurate, impartial, and legally correct.”

Now assigned to U.S. Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, Bergdahl left an American outpost in the summer of 2009 and fell into the hands of the Taliban. Dahl looked into his actions prior to his disappearance, while the Army said it found no evidence that he helped the enemy while a captive.
