James Foley, 39, an experienced war reporter who has covered other conflicts, was seized by armed men in Idlib on Nov. 22, witnesses say.

No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction.

Foley’s family, which had earlier asked media groups not to report the abduction in the hope that a low profile would assist in efforts to free him, broke their silence on Wednesday to reveal his plight.

“We want Jim to come safely home, or at least we need to speak with him to know he’s okay,” said his father, John Foley.
