PORT AU PRINCE, HAITI (WBRC) – The family of an Alabama missionary says they have been contacted by the missing man.
23-year-old Roger Eason's plane landed in Haiti on Tuesday morning. Eason was supposed to take another flight north, but it was delayed by weather. Placed in a hotel in Port Au Prince, Eason made contact with his family before the massive earthquake struck, but was not able to contact them again for a while afterwards.
Eason was able to make contact with his family once he was safe in the Dominican Republic. He will fly home soon.
Eason is the co-founder of the Bedouins International Missions. He is a former UAB student and worked as a substitute teacher at Hoover High School.
