ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - It's now been a year since an American journalist went missing in Syria, and his parents in New Hampshire are calling for a day of prayer.

James Foley was last seen Nov. 22, 2012, in northwestern Syria, where he was contributing videos from the nation's civil war to Agence France-Presse and the media company GlobalPost.

John and Diane Foley, of Rochester, N.H., say in a message posted on a website dedicated to the search for their son that it's a somber day for them, but it's also a day to renew their commitment to find him and bring him home.

The Foleys were attending a Friday morning Mass in Rochester.

Investigators have said they believe Foley is being held by the government near Damascus with one or more Western journalists.
