Pregnant US woman Caitlan Coleman missing in Afghanistan with husband
The family of a pregnant American woman missing with her husband in Afghanistan have made a fresh appeal for her safe return.

Caitlan Coleman, 27, is due to give birth in January and needs urgent medical attention, her father told the Associated Press news agency.

James Coleman said she had been travelling with her Canadian husband across Central Asia.

There are fears they were abducted, but no ransom has been demanded.

No militant group has said it is holding the couple and AP says when it contacted the Taliban two months ago, a spokesman said no Taliban members were involved.

The couple last contacted their family on 8 October from what Mr Coleman described as an "unsafe" part of Afghanistan.

It is not clear how they entered Afghanistan and what exactly they were doing there - they had also travelled through Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

#4  THAT is totally INSANE. Low-information travelers? Maybe they thought they could go on a peace mission... Maybe they believed O and decided to take a tour on how much those countries have improved under the lecherous eye of Hillary and DickTater O.

Sure hope they get out safely. Will have some TRUE tales to tell a waiting media... uhmm, wouldn't count on ever hearing any of it.

#3  She's 8-1/2 months pregnant and is "travelling across Central Asia" with hubby?!

What the hell is WRONG with her? What's wrong with her husband?

If she didn't want the kid, she could have gotten an abortion months ago in Canada, or the U.S. Instead she takes off for Afghanistan to get a full-term abortion of her child, her husband, and herself.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. >:-(
