Freed Hostage Jeffrey Woodke Spoke at a Press Conference Today

Freed captive Jeffrey Woodke Spoke at a press conference today with his wife by his side.


Arcata, Ca. Just a little over one week after being released from captivity in east Africa — former hostage Jeffrey Woodke spoke at a press conference in Arcata today.
It was a six-year ordeal — and today the McKinleyville man said his treatment was brutal.

At one point he wondered if he would ever see his wife and two sons again– but that his faith kept him going– and the “welcome from his church was awesome.”
