PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — An Ohio-based church organization says two of 17 abducted members of a missionary group have been freed in Haiti.

Christian Aid Ministries issued a statement Sunday saying the two “are safe, in good spirits and being cared for."

It said it could not give the names of those released, why they were freed, or other information. The group from Christian Aid Ministries was kidnapped by the 400 Mawozo gang on Oct. 16. There are five children in the group of 16 U.S. citizens and one Canadian. Their Haitian driver also was abducted.

A West Michigan family is among those kidnapped. The two freed missionaries are not from West Michigan. The Dunkard Brethren Church in Hart says it has received word their kidnapped members are O.K.
