Press Release on the safe Recovery of Joshua Boyle, Caitlan Coleman and their children

15, October, 2017
Kabul, Afghanistan

The AUAF Community including trustees, staff, faculty, administration and students are pleased to hear about the safe release of Joshua Boyle, Caitlan Coleman and their children. This American/Canadian couple were abducted in October 2012 while backpacking in Wardak province. During their five years in captivity the family was threatened to death multiple times. They were finally released early Thursday, October 12th, 2017.
While AUAF celebrates the release of Joshua and Caitlan with them and their families we want to demand the immediate and safe release of our two colleagues Kevin King and Tim Weeks as well. Kevin and Tim have been in captivity for the past year. They were English teachers and they came to Afghanistan to serve the Afghan people through educating youth.
We urge that they too are set free so they may return to their families and loved ones immediately.
