SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- A South Korean abducted more than 30 years ago has reportedly escaped from North Korea.
Sixty-five-year-old Yoon Jong-soo fled last month and is now under South Korean protection at a consulate in northeastern China.
South Korean officials say Yoon's North Korean wife and their daughter have since been arrested.
A South Korean Foreign Ministry official said talks concerning Yoon's fate were taking place with Chinese officials.
Yoon and 32 others ended up in the North when their fishing boat was seized off South Korea's east coast in 1975.
Of those who were seized with Yoon, three have returned to South Korea in recent years. Yoon was among 480 South Korean civilian abductees, mostly fishermen, believed still alive in the North.
