The remains of the last unaccounted U.S. service member has been identified, the U.S. military announced Sunday.

Staff Sgt. Ahmed Kousay al-Taie, and Iraqi-American, was kidnapped in 2006 when he sneaked off post to visit his wife in Baghdad. Al-Taie, who lived in Ann Arbor, Mich. but was born in Iraq, worked as an Army interpreter.

The Army says they have no further details at this time on al-Taie's death or the discovery of his remains.
