WASHINGTON — In the days following the January capture of an American contractor in Afghanistan, Navy SEAL commandos raided a village and detained suspected members of a Taliban-linked militant network, The Associated Press has learned.

U.S. intelligence agents also tried to track the cellphones of the man and his captors, but the trail went cold. There has been little public discussion by the U.S. government of Mark R. Frerichs' case, even as American negotiators arranged prisoner exchanges as part of their efforts to reach a peace deal with the Taliban. https://www.stripes.com/news/middle-east/seals-tried-to-locate-us-citizen-taken-by-afghan-militants-1.627905
