It has been thirteen days since Shiraz Mohammad was abducted in Syria.
But Gift of the Givers' Dr Imtiaz Sooliman says things are looking more hopeful. He says their team on the ground there has been communicating with various people inside Syria gathering information.
From various credible sources, we got the same information, that Shiraz is alive. They know the group that is holding him and where he is being held. All they need to know is why he is being held, what is the reason, and how to get him out.— Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, Gift of the Givers.
He says it is not unusual for no ransom note to have been issued at this stage.
Sooliman says there is good reason to be hopeful and they are expecting more information within the next 48 hours.
