Josh's mother, Laura, says she saw her son on May 21, 2010, but hasn't had any contact with him since. "I write to Josh every day. I write to him what I do. I give him hope," she says. "I ask questions that I know will not get answered. I tell him things that I think would make him energized and happy and realize he's coming home to a nest and a family that can't wait to grab him and hug him."

To help bring Shane and Josh home, Sarah, Cindy and Laura urge people everywhere to do what they can, including writing to Iranian authorities and reaching out to the U.S. government. "We really need the support of not only people in the United States but people all over the world," Cindy says. For more information on how to help, visit
