A $200,000 reward is being offered by the US military in hopes of finding three missing soldiers in Iraq.

Seven soldiers were ambushed over the weekend, and four of them killed.

Private First Class Daniel Courneya, from Vermontville, was among those killed.
Private Byron Fouty, who went to school in Commerce Township, is missing.

In Oakland County, Cathy Conger waits anxiously for news about him. She opened her home to him in 2005 after he was kicked out. Her son is a long-time friend of Fouty.

"He was always like family," she says.

At Walled Lake Central High School where he once attended, yellow ribbons are tied to trees. A note from the assistant principal says they'll remain there until he comes home safely. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
