In May 1992, Shetland was captured in Norte de Santander, Colombia, by FARC guerillas while serving as a liaison to the Colombian Army. He was successfully rescued by Fisher, who, despite going against direct orders, went off the radar, left camp and freed Shetland from captivity. It was heroic acts like this that earned Fisher his highly respected reputation as a solo operative, which later led to him being recruited as the first forward operator for the "Splinter Cell" program, as part of the Third Echelon initiative.
