Mormon Arrives Home




PORTLAND, Oregon -- A 20-year-old Mormon missionary from Lebanon who was held captive by two masked men for five days in Russia earlier this year has returned home.


Andrew Lee Probst was met Thursday by family members and friends who had not seen him in nearly two years.


Probst and Travis Tuttle of Gilbert, Arizona, made world headlines in March when they were taken captive by two men who demanded a $300,000 ransom from the Mormon Church. They were freed when their kidnappers feared they would be tracked down by police.
