(Washington) -- The families of an American couple missing in Afghanistan have made public two videos they received last year from the couple's captors.

A pregnant Caitlan Coleman and her Canadian husband Joshua Boyle lost touch with their families 20 months ago while traveling near Kabul.

The two short videos revealed by Coleman's parents in Stewartstown, York County, show the couple calling on the Obama administration to free them and their child from their Taliban captors.

Coleman's child would be about 18 months old.

The families decided to make the videos public now due to the publicity surrounding the weekend rescue in Afghanistan of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.
