***NOTE: The first I heard of or was made aware of any embargo surrounding the news of Richard Engel's disappearance was after hearing the welcome news of Engel's release this morning (12/18). --JN
Let's hope and pray this is a false alarm:
A Turkish reporter working for the NBC TV news network is said to have been missing in Syria since Wednesday, Turkish media reported on Monday.
Turkey’s NTV news channel reported that Turkish correspondent for NBC, Aziz Akyavas, went missing in Syria and has not been reached for four days.
Along with Akyavas, NBC is unable to reach its Middle East bureau chief Richard Engel, who was also reporting from inside Syria.
