Timothy E Bell - missing 7 years

This weekend marks the seven year anniversary since the disappearance of Timothy E. Bell of Mobile, Alabama. On Saturday, his family will be holding a memorial service in his honor.

Bell was abducted in Iraq on April 9, 2004 when the fuel convoy he was driving in was hit by gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades in an attack outside of Baghdad. Nine Americans were killed and at least 17 were injured. Thomas Hamill, truck convoy commander, was taken hostage and later set free by US forces. The remains of SSG Keith "Matt" Maupin, also missing after the attack, were eventually identified. Timothy Bell is the only member of his convoy who has not been accounted for.

Bell is the father of three and previously served in the US Army. He was planning to be married in the summer of 2004. At the time of his disappearance, Bell was a 43-year-old electrician for Halliburton subsidiary KBR.

My sincere condolences to his friends and family.
