A family spokesman says an Ohio man being detained in North Korea was on vacation as part of a tour.
Tepe says Fowle's wife and three children miss him and are anxious for his return.
The family also thanked the Swedish Embassy for their "continuing efforts" and the support they've been offered around the world.
Fowle's wife flanked Tepe as he read the statement to reporters. They declined to answer questions.
The state-run Korean Central News Agency said Friday that Fowle was being detained for acts inconsistent with a tourist visit.
