BOISE -- A sobering reminder of how long Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been a POW. The Idaho soldier was captured by the Taliban in 2009.

Today is his 27th birthday.

At the statehouse Thursday, Senator Michelle Stennett, who represents Bowe's home town of Hailey reminded everyone to keep Bergdahl in their prayers.

Senator Bart Davis gave his thoughts as well. Tragically, we have prayed for his release on this floor for some years, said Davis. Maybe... hopefully, things will happen on his and his family's behalf shortly.

Bergdahl is now believed to be held in Pakistan.
