FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — Soldiers at Fort Carson are looking for 55 capsules of tear gas that went missing following a training exercise.

A base official said Wednesday the thumb-size capsules present no risk to the public.

The capsules are used to train soldiers how to use their gas masks and about the effects of tear gas if the masks are not used properly.
