An American woman, then pregnant, went missing in Afghanistan in late 2012 with her Canadian husband. Then her family received videos last summer showing the couple in captivity. The videos now have been provided to The Associated Press.

On camera, Caitlan Coleman calls on the U.S. government to help free her, her baby and husband Joshua Boyle from Taliban captors.

The videos were emailed to Coleman’s father last July and September by an Afghan man with self-proclaimed ties to the Taliban.

They offer the first clues about what happened to the couple since they lost touch with their families. U.S. officials consider the videos authentic.

The families are making the videos public now because of the publicity surrounding the rescue of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
