The Daily Mail reported:

NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel, one of the most prominent and accomplished international correspondents in the world, is reportedly missing in Syria.

Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reports that Engel, together with Turkish journalist Aziz Akyavaş, were last known to be in Syria and haven’t been in contact with NBC News since Thursday morning.

While the Turkish media have been circulating the report for several days, American outlets had been operating under a news blackout requested by NBC until today.

UPDATE: (Tuesday AM) Engel and his crew was released today after five days in captivity.

  1. While the Turkish media have been circulating the report for several days, American outlets had been operating under a news blackout requested by NBC until today.

    NBC still not reporting the news. They have “talking points” down to a science; news, notsomuch notatall.

  2. My heart goes out to his family. I sincerely hope he is ok.

    That said, these correspondents are purposely putting themselves and their would-be rescuers at risk for the sole purpose of getting a career-building headline. They refuse to tell the truth in words or photos. The true stories, as well as the implications of the gang rape in Egypt and other abductions and attacks on the press, are hidden from us so as not to interrupt the pro-jihadist, leftist template. If and when he returns we can expect the same bias.

  3. Delivering guns to the rebels on behalf of the BHO regime or maybe spying for them???

    Seriously though, hope he is safe and will be heard from soon.

  4. Hate to say it, but I have no sympathy for anyone from lying, Commie NBC News/

  5. There better not be any dead Marines trying to rescue these dolts.

  6. I hope Richard Engel is found alive and well.

    Figures when its one of their own they get all tight lip and quite.

  8. Boy, when are these people going to learn?

    Note to “journalists”: Your profession does NOT give you any magical immunity on the battlefield, especially where the combatants involve dictators, strongmen, and terrorists. Those types are unlikely to give a rat’s you-know-what about the Geneva Convention or any other agreement that spells out some sort of protection for your kind.

    What’s important to remember is this: It’s theoretical protection, but it won’t stop them from killing you if they feel like it.

  9. Two words: this is NOT good

  10. Even though I disagree with his network, I hope for his safe return. I know he’s very fluent in Arabic, and I hope and pray that helps him survive whatever it is he’s going through.

    First and foremost he’s an American, and we can’t have anyone targeting Americans abroad regardless who they are.

    Really? Remember how NBC covered for administration incompetence in Benghazi? What about those murdered Americans?

    Why is it that the only Americans in trouble who deserve our attention are the representatives of propagandists disguised as journalists?

    Maybe if a few more journalists from NBC, CBS, and ABC are beheaded on YouTube these propagandists will learn to utter the words “Islamic Terror”.

    As it stands now, just who is it who has this ‘journalist’? Tea Party racists, no doubt.

  12. Hate to say it, but I have no sympathy for anyone from lying, Commie NBC News

    If you hated to say it so, you wouldn’t have.

  13. If they did grab him why haven’t the terrorists claimed credit yet along with their ransom demands? Maybe they killed him during the operation & they don’t know what to do w/ the corpse. It isn’t worth much if he is dead.

    This is really interesting, in fact, all of the youtube videos by “Syrian Girl” are worth watching. Turns out, we may have been deceived by past & present administrations about Assad. (Gov’t lied – shocking I know!)

  15. He is a captive and will soon follow the road of that other American reporter who was beheaded.

  16. Why are you there is my question? I guess this is the religion of peace?
