Thirty-nine-year-old James Foley was kidnapped in northwest Syria by unknown gunmen on Nov. 22, his parents said Thursday. He was in the country contributing videos to Agence France-Press, which has vowed to help secure his release.
Foley's parents, John and Diane Foley, decided to hold a news conference at their home in the U.S. state of New Hampshire to make a public plea to his captors because the Foleys haven't received any information about their son in six weeks.
“We just don't know anything,” Diane Foley said. “We don't know who has him.”
