(FOX NEWS) – Joshua Holt, who was headed back to the U.S. on Saturday after being jailed in Venezuela since 2016, has landed on home soil, according to an official who traveled with him.
“We’re home,” Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee tweeted, hours after saying in a statement that he was accompanying the Holts back to the U.S. “Honored to greet Josh Holt’s parents at the airport. So happy for them.”
The 26-year-old’s long-awaited arrival comes after he spent roughly two years incarcerated in Venezuela after traveling to the country in the summer of 2016 to marry Thamara Candelo.
The pair planned to return to the U.S. after their nuptials, but were jailed in El Hilcolde on what human rights groups said were largely trumped-up charges.
