"They got the news late yesterday that he was coming in. So, they're really looking forward to seeing Gary. It's been a while," Faulkner's brother-in-law John Martin was quoted as saying on the network's website.
Faulkner was detained on June 13 in the remote mountains of Chitral, once a rumored hiding place of bin Laden, near Afghanistan's Nuristan province, armed with a pistol, dagger, sword and night-vision equipment.
Long haired and bearded, a Christian believer but suffering from health problems, Faulkner dubbed "the American Ninja" was on a solo mission to track down and kill al Qaeda figurehead bin Laden, his family has said.
Brother Scott Faulkner told CNN that Gary Faulkner had been motivated to hunt bin Laden out of a desire to avenge the September 11, 2001 attacks and a belief in God, saying he was not crazy, psychotic or schizophrenic.
