LDS Missionaries Held Captive in New Mexico Speak Out

Two Albuquerque Mormon missionaries were held captive by someone they were trying to witness to last week.

Elder Zuniga Delgado and Elder Michael Whitaker were witnessing in their apartment complex off of Montgomery Boulevard NE last Tuesday. They met a man at a bus stop named Erwin Smith who invited them into his home to discuss helping him move, a service the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints offers to many.

While inside, Smith began drinking heavily and started making suicidal statements, according to the documents. He wouldn’t allow Delgado and Whitaker to leave for more than three hours.
