    SEATTLE, Feb. 3 /CNW/ -- The family of Cyd Mizell, an American aid worker
currently being held in Afghanistan, today released the following statement
from her father, George Mizell:
    "I am Cydney's father. My family and I want to thank all those who have
shown their deep concern for the safety and well being of my daughter, Cydney
Mizell, and Muhammad Hadi. I am indebted to the Afghan people for their
support of Cydney and Muhammad.
    "My family and I love Cyd very much. I'm confused why my daughter would
be taken because she's a gentle, caring and respectful person.
    "When we talk to Cyd, she tells us about the friends she's made and the
kindness that's been shown to her and her desire to help them.
    "To those people who are holding our daughter, please let Cyd come home.
Each day that passes without knowing about Cyd is difficult for our family and
    "We ask that you work with us so Cyd can come home.  Cyd knows how to
contact us and her co-workers.  All of us are waiting to hear from you."
