Family of soldier captured in Iraq praying for his return

The family of a soldier from Ohio who is shown on a videotape as a captive in Iraq says they are praying for his safe return. A family friend read a statement this evening at the suburban Cincinnati home of Army soldier Keith Maupin's mother. Family friend Carl Cottrell said Maupin's family loves him and can't wait for his return to give him a hug. Cottrell said Maupin's family has viewed the videotape which shows Maupin as a hostage with several armed captors. Cottrell was flanked by military officers who went to the home of Carolyn Maupin to be with the family. .
