DENVER (AP) - Two Afghan prison officials walked away from a training program in Colorado in the last 13 months, but the state never announced their disappearances.

Based on state records, The Denver Post reported Monday that one of the unidentified men left the International Correctional Management Training Center in Canon City in September 2013. The other disappeared in February.

Prison system spokeswoman Adrienne Jacobson said both passed background checks and there was no reason to believe they would be involved in wrongdoing.

One was caught trying to get into Canada, but the other is still missing.

The state's response is different than that in Massachusetts, where authorities released the names and photos of three Afghan soldiers who went missing during a September trip to a mall.
