Biondi was originally scheduled to return to St. Louis July 25. Berry says Biondi still plans to meet with local Lebanese religious leaders.
The Reverend Andre Mhanna, a Catholic priest from St. Louis, is traveling with Biondi. St. Raymond's Maronite Catholic Parish, where Mhanna is rector, says as of Thursday night, Mhanna reported he was okay
