KABUL - The family of a U.S. soldier captured in eastern Afghanistan more than five months ago pleaded for the release of their son Friday and urged him to "stay strong."

I posted this story yesterday in a different section and recieved very little views. I am changing where I post this hopefully to recieve more awareness and maybe information on what we can do.
As this young man has been held for 5 months now even thou it is not breaking news, it is news that we need to be aware of and pray for daily. If I did any breech of posting , please put that aside at this moment.
I am praying with you.
I have this young man on my prayer list. I didn’t know his name before today, but knowing that he is there tears me up.
Prayers on the way!
Do we really think he’s alive? These people are animals... I pray he is ok...
I really hope he is. If they have killed him they probably would have drug his body around showing off.
there is also this on facebook - please join it if you can.
Isn’t this the young man who left his post under suspicious circumstances, possibly voluntarily?
after you asked that question (which I have not heard it before) I did some research and this is the best info I could find by someone I trust..
Michelle said there are 3 different stories...so who knows.
But still God be with him.
Yes, we should be very careful to not make accusations this serious without some basis in fact, but it does seem fairly clear that no one came into his area and took him away.
Regardless, prayers for his long-suffering family, and him.
