MIA is a common military term for when a soldier or member of a team goes Missing In Action. If someone is declared Missing In Action it means that they went missing, often, but not always, captured by the enemy, whilst on a mission for a Government or, more often, a Military. MIA also generally indicates that the armed force in question has no active rescue operations currently underway concerning these parties. The status is changed to KIA (Killed In Action) if the death is later confirmed.
