The parents of 39-year-year-old James Foley, a videojournalist working with Agence France Press, are appealing for his release, more than a month after he went missing in Syria.
John and Diane Foley of Rochester, N.H., said their son was kidnapped in northwest Syria by unknown gunmen on Nov. 22. He was in the country contributing videos to Agence France-Press, which has vowed to help secure his release.
The Foleys said Thursday they haven't received any information about their son in six weeks.
Foley has worked in a number of conflict zones in the Middle East. In 2011, he was held by government forces in Libya while covering that country's civil war. He was released weeks later.
