"Monica Witt, who allegedly defected to Iran in 2013, had previously worked as a US counterintelligence officer. ... According to the FBI, Ms Witt was last seen in southwest Asia in July 2013. A previously issued FBI missing persons poster said she was working as an English teacher in either Afghanistan or Tajikistan, and had lived overseas for more than a year before vanishing. ... Monica Elfriede Witt left the US military in 2008 after more than a decade of service. In a charging document, investigators say she was deployed by the US to locations in the Middle East to conduct classified counterintelligence operations. She is accused of sharing US government secrets, including the name of agents and specifics of operations, with Iran beginning as early as January 2012."
