ANKARA, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- A Turkish reporter working for the NBC TV news network is said to have been missing in Syria since Wednesday, Turkish media reported on Monday.

Turkey's NTV news channel reported that Turkish correspondent for NBC, Aziz Akyavas, went missing in Syria and has not been reached for four days.

Along with Akyavas, NBC is unable to reach its Middle East bureau chief Richard Engel, who was also reporting from inside Syria.

In a related story, a Turkish journalist, held in Syria for three months by a group alleged to be linked to the Syrian government, was released last month, according to the report.

Cuneyt Unal, who works for the U.S.-funded al-Hurra television channel, went missing with his Jordanian colleague Bashar Fahmi Kadumi shortly after crossing into Syria from Turkey on Aug. 20.
