Alan Jara is a Colombian civil engineer and the former Governor of the Region of Meta. After his term as Governor ended, Alan began working with the United Nations in Columbia. On 10 July 2001, while traveling in a UN convoy, Alan’s car was stopped by the Colombian terrorist group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). They kidnapped him at gunpoint and held him in the jungle with their other captives for seven years.
