The U.S. Department of State’s Rewards for Justice Program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the location, recovery, and return of Cydney Mizell.
In January of 2008, Cydney Mizell, a U.S. worker for a non-governmental organization, was abducted by unidentified gunmen in Kandahar City, Afghanistan, along with her driver. Mizell was likely killed by her captors in 2008 and may have been buried in the Kandahar area.
Cydney Mizell was a white female, 5’8” (173 cm) tall, and weighed 140 pounds (63.5 kg). She had gray hair and brown eyes. She spoke fluent Pashto after living and working in Kandahar for three years supporting Afghan women and children in need.
