The Army sent up a $1.5 million drone in Arizona, but it never came home. Drone, phone home! The Army looked everywhere. Sent out helicopters, humvees with search and rescue teams, but no one could find it.
Spoiler alert - it was found 9 days and hundreds of miles later. Not by the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines. The drone was found in a tree in Colorado by a hiker.
A hiker spotted the Shadow drone in the foothills west of Denver on Thursday, officials at Fort Huachuca in Arizona told the Colorado Springs Gazette.
The $1.5 million drone was missing a wing, The Associated Press reported. "An investigation into what happened is the next step," Fort Huachuca spokeswoman Tanja Linton said.
