SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan man who has spent more than four years imprisoned in Iran has received some medical treatment.

Amir Hekmati, a former Marine, was visiting family in Iran in 2011 when he was taken captive and accused of being a spy. A claim his family denies.

In a post on social media, his supporters now say that after months of asking, Amir was taken to the hospital for tests to identify reoccurring health problems.

The post goes on to say there are no answers yet, but are asking for thoughts and prayers for Amir.
