A Central Oregon couple spent a week detained across the world – in a pair of Malaysian cells.
What started off as a dream summer trip for Samantha Henry and her boyfriend Will Lucas ended in a life-changing experience.
An experience they say could have been much, much worse.
Today, they sat down with Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan for an exclusive interview about their ordeal.
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.
