An American citizen who went missing last month in Vietnam has been found: He’s in a Vietnamese prison, accused of conspiring against the government. No charges have been filed against Michael Nguyen, also known as Michael Phuong Minh Nguyen, of Orange, but he’s being detained without the ability to see his family or lawyers, his family said during a press conference Thursday morning outside Orange City Hall. While relieved to hear he’s alive, his brother-in-law, Mark Roberts, called his detainment a violation of human rights and international law.
