YOKOSUKA, Japan — A team of POW/MIA investigators arrived in Guam this week to search for information on Americans who remain missing from World War II.

The Hawaii-based team will spend two weeks looking for evidence regarding some 70 servicemembers from World War II, who have yet to be accounted for, according to a news release from the Joint Prisoners of War, Missing in Action Accounting Command.

The seven-person team will track down leads from eyewitnesses, conduct field research and attempt to find wreckage, personal effects and other clues related to the missing servicemembers. Team members also hope to lay groundwork for future teams, according to the release.

JPAC also welcomes information on U.S. losses on its website, click on “Report a site,” under the Contact Us tab.
