The parents of American Journalist Austin Tice, kidnapped in Syria six years ago, appealed Tuesday to the U.S. and Syria to secure the release of their son, speaking at a news conference in Beirut."Because Austin is an American and because he is detained in Syria, we urge both the United States government and the Syrian government to work together to resolve this humanitarian issue," Marc Tice, Austin's father, was quoted as saying in a series of tweets from Lebanon's SKeyes Center for Media and Cultural Freedom.The parents said they had credible information that Tice was still alive.
