Family, attorney of man held captive in North Korea speak

The wife and children of a West Carrollton man being held captive in North Korea are seeking help from current and former U.S. presidents in securing his release.

Help for the release of Jeffrey Fowle, 56, is being sought through President Obama and former Presidents Bush and Clinton, the family's attorney said today.

Fowle, a Beavercreek High School graduate and Moraine city worker, has been held captive in North Korea since mid-May and "the family is urgently seeking assistance from our government leaders," attorney Tim Tepe said flanked by Fowle's wife and children.
