Mother of US reporter missing 3 years in Syria urges US help

The mother of American reporter Austin Tice, who has been missing in Syria for more than three years, believes her son is alive and well and urged Washington and Damascus to work together to free him. Tice went missing in Damascus in 2012 and the US State Department said in March Washington had been in periodic, direct contact with the Syrian government regarding his case, a statement his mother said provided a glimmer of hope. “We ask both governments to work together and to work effectively to locate Austin and to secure his safe release,” Debra Tice told Reuters in Beirut on Tuesday during a trip to mark more than 1,000 days since he disappeared.
