SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A general investigating the disappearance of a U.S. Army sergeant in Afghanistan is getting several more weeks to complete his probe.

U.S. Army spokesman Wayne Hall said in an email Saturday that the final draft of the report on Sgt. Bowe Berdahl will take another three weeks to complete. Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl had 60 days from his June 16 appointment to finish his work. That deadline was Friday.

Hall says once Dahl submits his final report, it will undergo a separate legal review before being presented to Army leadership.

Bergdahl was held as a prisoner of war in Afghanistan for five years. His exchange for five Taliban leaders has generated criticism due to allegations Bergdahl was a deserter.

Bergdahl is currently stationed at Fort Sam Houston in Texas.
