      Air Force officials are continuing their search for the Airman who went missing last week.

      "We are absolutely committed to finding Lieutenant Lee. We are conducting a thorough investigation, using all available resources to locate him," said Col. Buck Elton, 27th Special Operations Wing commander.

      USAF Lt. Scott W. Lee, pictured to the right, was last seen Monday, March 12 at 11 a.m. leaving his apartment in Clovis , New Mexico State Police said. He was scheduled to report for duty at Cannon AFB on Tuesday.

      He was driving a black Toyota Tacoma with N.M. License plate 757-RGR, officials said.

      Police said his cell phone is turned off and he has not contacted any of his immediate family. Lt. Lee has no history of local friends of family in the area, police said.

      "Although we will not describe the specific details of this ongoing investigation, I assure you, locating Lieutenant Lee is our team's top priority. We will release details as soon as it is appropriate to do so," he said.
