Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, an American soldier held captive in Afghanistan for the last five years, is coming home.

Townsquare Media affiliate KIDO/Boise reports Bergdahl, the only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan, has been freed by the Taliban in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay.

KIDO host Kevin Miller filed this report on the station website:

“Bowe Bergdahl is free and we are so happy to report it.  President Obama made the statement this morning that Bowe is safe.

“The Bergdahl Family said, ‘We were so joyful and relieved when President Obama called us today to give us the news that Bowe is finally coming home!  We cannot wait to wrap our arms around our only son.  We want to thank Bowe’s many supporters in Idaho, around the nation and around the world.  We thank the Amir of Qatar for his efforts.  And of course, we want to take this opportunity to thank all those in the many U.S. Government agencies who never gave up.  Today, we are ecstatic!’”

Below is a video of Kevin Miller talking about a recent “Freedom Walk” held for Sgt. Bergdahl.
