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

McClaine, 25, went missing in September when she did not show up for duty at Fort Campbell. Her 2013-model, 2-door, silver Hyundai Elantra was found several days later in a private lot in downtown Nashville.


Fort Campbell officials released the following statement Tuesday:


"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."


McClaine's family didn't have any additional information on the two people arrested.  However, they said they are in constant contact with Fort Campbell police.


They have also searched parks around Clarksville, and handed out fliers with Shadow's picture.


"This is hard," said Jesse Willis, Shadow's father.  "Somebody knows something, and I wish they could come forward and tell us."


Family said even after 53 days, they aren't giving up hope they will get answers soon.

"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."


McClaine's ex-husband, Jamal McCray was also arrested and booked in the Montgomery County jail.  He was charged with out of county warrants.  It is unclear if he is being 

investigated in connection to her disappearance.


Special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command asked the public’s help for additional information back in September.


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
