A Marine gunnery sergeant, Atlas, has failed to report for duty after a weekend; he's a technician in explosive-ordnance disposal (EOD), one of a handful of people with a critical qualification, so his unauthorized absence (UA) brings in the NCIS. Gibbs and company track him, and they find a newspaper reporter with some helpful information; meanwhile Atlas is shackled to a wall inside a small concrete-block room with a decomposing human body. Abby learns that three other Marines also have disappeared from EOD units in the past eight years, and she finds a pattern; Tony encounters Atlas. Abby, Gibbs, and Kate connect the dots, then Gibbs and Kate find Tony and Atlas. Written by DocRushing
