Idaho town hopes for safe return of soldier

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A candlelight vigil is being planned in Idaho tonight for the safe return of a U.S. soldier seen in a Taliban propaganda video.

The parents of Bowe Bergdahl say they appreciate all the support they've received since the release of the 28-minute long footage of the frightened young soldier.

Meanwhile, there are conflicting reports about whether Bergdahl willingly left his base in Afghanistan or was kidnapped.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates pledges that the military is doing everything it can to bring him home.
