An American family has been stranded in Afghanistan and is desperate to get out after the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul.

According to KDVR-TV, a Colorado man, who did not want to be identified out of safety concerns, is doing whatever he can to try to get his wife and children home from Kabul.

The man told the outlet that his family was in Afghanistan visiting relatives when his wife called him Saturday evening crying. She told him that the Taliban was all over the city and she just wanted to be able to return home.

“My wife and my daughters for now are hiding in a house in Kabul,” the man told the outlet.

The man said that he had secured a Turkish Airlines flight for his family to return to the states on Sunday, but hours before the flight, he received a notification that it had been canceled.

“I’m worried about my wife and children,” the man said.

The man also told KDVR that while he had filled out a form with the United States Embassy to ask for assistance with returning his family home, nobody has contacted him about the matter so far.
