A Christian nurse and her child, both Americans, are two of the latest victims abducted by a criminal gang in Haiti.

The U.S. government is quietly and cautiously working to secure their release.

“We are in regular contact with the Haitian authorities and we’ll continue to work with them and our U.S. interagency partners,” Matthew Miller, U.S. State Department Spokesperson, said

The family and friends of Alix Dorsainvil are asking for prayers, mercy, and the safe return for the nurse from New Hampshire and her child.

They were kidnapped Thursday from the grounds of the faith-based charity El Roi, near the Haitian Capital Port Au Prince.

Her husband, Sandro, is El Roi’s director.
