I’d be meaning to do something about this for almost exactly a year now, so I gave a try and posted this message on another forum. The advice I was given was that I somehow should contact the U.S military. Well I tried that, with no luck finding any number or email for help.

MENENDEZ THRILLED OVER RELEASE OF SOLECKI, THE U.N. OFFICIAL AND NEW JERSEY NATIVE HELD CAPTIVE IN PAKISTAN
Menendez, member of Senate Foreign Relations Committee, worked with family, pressed Pakistani ambassador
Monday, April 6, 2009
WASHINGTON – The United Nations has confirmed the release of John Solecki, the head of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and native of Demarest, New Jersey who was being held captive by an extremist group in Pakistan.
US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, worked with the Solecki family during this ordeal and was in touch with the Pakistani ambassador through his position on the committee. Today, he released the following statement:
“First and foremost, this is a beautiful day for John Solecki and his family in New Jersey, and I am thrilled for them. In working on behalf of the Solecki family, it was evident that John has a strong and loving family back here at home, and it is absolutely wonderful that they will be reunited.
”This harrowing episode is another reminder that there are militant groups in our world who seek to destroy freedom. John is doing terrific work for some of the most helpless people on Earth, and to target him is a sign of an extreme and disturbed group. Organizations like the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees are helping make this a freer, more peaceful world – the type of work that can one day help make militant organizations like the one that detained John obsolete.”
