An Amish rebel displays the bicycle Howard Johnson was riding when he was captured earlier this month.

The State Department has confirmed that Illinois resident, Howard Johnson, has been captured and is being held for ransom by renegade Amish rebels in southern Iowa.

According to a statement from the department, Mr. Johnson was enjoying a leisurely ride through what he thought was Illinois territory when he was captured.

"Regrettably, further investigation has confirmed that he had indeed strayed across the border between Illinois and Iowa when the incident occurred."

The statement continues: "The State Department is doing everything in it's power to secure the release of Howard Johnson and is in talks with both the Iowa Government and Amish Rebels."
