Top U.S. senators are pressing for the release of a Dansville man who has been held by the Taliban in Afghanistan for more than 600 days.

In a joint resolution this week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for the immediate and unconditional release of Ryan Corbett, who has been detained without charges and held in an underground cell by the Taliban since Aug. 10, 2022.

The leaders asked for the Senate to pass the resolution before Corbett’s birthday, which is April 13.
