(WLAX/WEUX) – A group of U.S. missionaries, including children, are kidnapped by a gang in Haiti.

According to a voice message sent to multiple religious missions by an Ohio-based Christian aid ministry, 17 missionaries were abducted.

A source in the country’s security force says of those taken, 14 were adults and 3 were children.

The group was reportedly traveling back to where they were staying after building an orphanage in Port-au-Prince when they were taken from their vehicle.

The mission field director and the U.S. embassy are doing all they can to get the group returned.
