The parents of an American couple, missing in Afghanistan for more than two months, are reaching out in an effort to confirm the couple is safe. Here’s the BBC:

“The family of an American woman who went missing in afghanistan along with her Canadian husband has appealed for the couple's safe return … She is expecting a baby in January and needs regular check-ups. The Coleman family last heard from the pair in early October.”

Twenty seven-year-old Caitlin Coleman and her husband Josh’s last correspondence with their family came from an Internet cafe in what Josh described as an "unsafe" part of Afghanistan.

According to The Inquisitr, the couple were on a trip that began in July of this year, where they traveled through Russia, several Asian countries, and were last known to be in Afghanistan.

Afghan officials claimed the couple was kidnapped in the Wardak province, west of the capital Kabul. So far, however, there has been no clear evidence they were abducted. Many insurgent groups operate in the area but none have claimed responsibility for their disappearance, or demanded a ransom.

It is not known if they are still alive or how they entered Afghanistan. There is also no information about what they were doing there before they vanished. And according to Afghan officials, their trail has gone cold.

The family broke their silence in a video posted on YouTube, hoping it would lead to a breakthrough, telling the Sky News:

“I don’t know what kind of care they’re getting or not getting. We’re just an average family and we don't have connections with anybody and we don't have a lot of money. … Our goal is to get them back safely and healthy.”
