The wife of a kidnapped East Texas man is fearing for the safety of her husband.

White Oak High School graduate Danny Burch was abducted in Yemen Saturday. He moved to Yemen in the 1980's to take an oil job.

Since then he has remarried and had three sons. His wife Nadia is very worried about him.

She says her children are not allowed to go to school or leave the house. She fears for their safety.

Nadia is in contact with local Yemeni authorities and the U.S. State Department. Danny Burch's brother Ron tells us he was estranged from the family.

They did not know he was alive until they read about his kidnapping. The family are very happy to know he is alive but very worried about his safety.
