Parents: Diplomat's wife in fatal crash should return to UK

Harry Dunn's parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, made their case directly to American audiences at a news conference Monday in New York.

Their 19-year-old son was killed in August when his motorcycle collided with a car outside a British air force base in southern England used by the U.S. military.

Anne Sacoolas subsequently left Britain. The U.K. says she has lost diplomatic immunity.

Sacoolas says in a statement from her lawyers that she is "devastated." Her whereabouts are uncertain.

Tim Dunn also talked on "CBS This Morning ," where he recalled speaking to his son for the last time at the gruesome crash scene.
