Video: Family release video appeal for captured daughter and husband

The family of a US woman who went missing with her husband in Afghanistan in 2012 has told the AP that they were sent a video of the couple appealing for their release last year. The AP said in a June 4 report that the videos are “the first and only clues about what happened to Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle”. The family decided to make the video public, the AP said, in light of the publicity surrounding the release of Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, freed by the Taliban in exchange for five Guantanamo inmates. This video shows an original appeal, from 2012, by Coleman’s parents following her disappearance. US officials said the videos established “beyond doubt” that the couple were captured, but they do not qualify as proof of life. Credit: YouTube/James Coleman
