United States officials announced Tuesday at a National Press Club event that missing Houston-native journalist Austin Tice, a former UH student, is believed to be alive.

Robert O’Brien, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs, said the United States believes Tice is alive and still captive in Syria more than six years after he went missing while working as a freelance journalist in the area, according to coverage by the Houston Chronicle.
