Photojournalist Austin Tice of Houston has been missing in Syria for 921 days.

Tice disappeared in August 2012, apparently captured by one of the groups fighting in that region. He resurfaced a month later in a video uploaded to YouTube showing him in a mock execution, but alive and well.

His parents, Marc and Debra Tice, are launching a social media campaign in their effort to bring him home.
