Central Oregon Couple Detained in Malaysia Heading Home

Samantha Henry and her boyfriend Will Lucas were traveling abroad in Asia for most of the summer – backpacking and helping families across the continent.

They were supposed to be on a plane headed back to the United States last Monday. That’s when Henry’s father said they went missing.

Turns out, the couple was being held in a detention center in Malaysia.

A week later, they’re on their way home. Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanon spoke with the woman’s father about how the harrowing story unfolded.
