An American Christian held in North Korea says he feels 'abandoned' by the United States government.

Kenneth Bae, a former tour guide, has been imprisoned in the communist country for nearly two years.

In an interview with a pro-North Korea newspaper based in Japan, Bae said nothing seems to be happening in his case.

He also said he's afraid of being sent back to a labor camp.

Bae's sister said it's the first they've heard of him since April and she called on the White House to do more to secure his release.

Bae is one of three Americans held in North Korea.
