Two soldiers were taken into custody in connection to the case of missing female soldier, PFC Shadow Branice McClaine.

The 25-year-old soldier, stationed at Fort Campbell, has not had contact with anyone since the evening of September 2nd. McClaine last had contact with her mother at 7:07 P.M. through a text message that said she was driving at the moment.

McCliane was supposed to house sit for a friend in Clarksville, KY for the weekend but never showed up.  She also never reported for duty after the weekend ended.

In a statement, Fort Campbell officials said, “Two Soldiers are currently being held as persons of interest in the disappearance of PFC Shadow McClaine. Fort Campbell law enforcement continue to investigate the matter. No further details are available at this time.”

The Army has not released the names of the soldiers who have been named as persons of interest in the case.

Two weeks after her disappearance it was discovered she was supposed to appear in court on stalking charges.  She has open court cases on the charges of stalking, criminal impersonation and contempt of court, according to court documents.

McClaine’s family didn’t have any additional information on the two people arrested, but did say they are in constant contact with Fort Campbell police, according to News Channel 5.

MClaine’s family is not giving up on bringing her home despite the 53 days since her disappearance.

“We don’t know what condition she is in,” added Connie McClaine, Shadow’s grandmother. “We just want to bring her home. We just can’t leave her here.”

McClain’s ex-husband Jamal McCray, also a soldier, was arrested and booked into the Montgomery County jail earlier this month on Oct. 6.

It is not clear if he is being investigated in connection to her disappearance as he was charged with out of county warrants.  Montgomery County Sheriff’s office and Fort Campbell police have not released what the warrants were for.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the U.S. Army CID at 270-798-9406, Fort Campbell Military Police at 270-798-0416 or email CID Headquarters at
