PA Family Held Captive by Taliban-linked Group Released

October 12, 2017 01:02 PM

ISLAMABAD (AP) - A small Pennsylvania town is rejoicing over news that a young woman and her family have been released after being held captive for years by a Taliban-linked group.
    
U.S. officials say Pakistan secured the release of Caitlan Coleman of Stewartstown, Pennsylvania, her Canadian husband, Joshua Boyle, and their three children, who were born in captivity.
    
Neighbors of Coleman's parents say they can't imagine how thrilled the couple must be about meeting their grandchildren.
    
Family members remain inside the house in rural Stewartstown, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) north of Baltimore, where Coleman grew up.
    
Neighbor Karen Nycum says it must have been hard for her parents "maintaining that hope."
