Bob Hamza - missing

Who is Bob Hamza?

In the sidebar of a recent Associated Press article, the deputy director for the Personnel Recovery Division, USAF Maj. Jimmy Smith, is shown holding a flyer of 3 missing Americans. The first sentence of the caption reads:

In this Jan. 7, 2011 photo, U.S. Air Force Maj. Jimmy Smith holds a flyer with the photos of missing persons Bob Hamza, left, Abbas Kareem Naama, center and U.S. Army reservist Ahmed Kousay al-Taie, right, in Baghdad, Iraq.
As both Tim Naama and Sgt. Ahmed Kousay al-Taie are Iraqi Americans, I am just going to assume Hamza must be one of the four Iraqi Americans thought to be missing in Iraq. There are two SIGACT reports that specifically identify missing Iraqi Americans: February 1, 2007 and March 3, 2007.

Beyond the sidebar, I can't find any additional information on Bob Hamza or when or how he disappeared.

Somebody out there must know who Bob Hamza is.
