FORT RILEY, Kan. (WIBW) -- The U.S. Army says two Fort Riley soldiers who went missing are considered absent without leave.

Nineteen-year-old Private First Class Richard Ferguson and 20 year-old Bradley Kappel are both from Noblesville, Indiana.

The statement from the Army's Criminal Investigation Command says their investigation found the two soldiers did not disappear under suspicious circumstances nor were the victims of foul play.

Their families are asking for help to find them.

They say the pair left Fort Riley on July 21st and that Ferguson -- who goes by the name Conner -- was last seen the next day in Denver, trying to hitchhike.
