LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Congressman Morgan McGarvey called for the release of an American citizen wrongfully detained by the Taliban in Afghanistan for more than 550 days.

His name is Ryan Corbett. On Wednesday, his father Drue Corbett and McGarvey said he feels the U.S. government needs to step up to bring his son home. Ryan’s father said his son is being held under inhumane conditions and needs medical attention.

The U.S. government has recently designated Ryan as an unlawful detainee. He was captured back in August 2022 while he was working in Afghanistan teaching Afghans business strategies.
