Its bad news I am afraid - this is a scam.
This person does not exist.
This is common fraud where people get to know other people online, they befriend them, gain their trust and then come up with a story that they are being held and need money to get out.
This is a scam and is called advance fee fraud.
I assume you sent the money by Western Union or Moneygram? This is the same as sending cash and I am sorry to say all the money you have sent has been lost.
This may sound like a real person - but the person does NOT exist and this is a scam.
You are not the first person and will not be the last to get caught out.
You need to report this to your local Police station who will pass it onto the Serious Fraud Office.
But sadly this is a scam.
You can read about them here:
II am sorry to say that money sent this way has been lost and can not be traced, it is the same as cash.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and it is certainly not the one I want to give but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything about this for you today please?
