HAITI, December 17, 2021 ~ The remaining 12 missionaries kidnapped over two months ago by an armed Haitian gang have been released, according to the Haitian National Police.

Those released include four members of a west Michigan family, now being reunited with two other family members who were released back on December 5.

The family was part of a group of 17 missionaries who were kidnapped while on their way to a Port-au-Prince orphanage.

Some reports indicate that a ransom was paid, though it is unclear by who, or if the sum matched the originally demanded $1 million per head.
