BEIRUT — The family of an American journalist says he went missing in Syria more than one month ago while covering the civil war there.
The statement appealed to those holding Foley to contact the family “so we can work together toward his release.”
He was contributing videos to Agence France-Press while in Syria.
The news agency quoted its chairman, Emmanuel Hoog, as saying it was doing all it could to secure Foley’s release.
“He is a professional journalist who is absolutely neutral in this conflict,” Hoog said.
