I've been hearing word that a handful of reporters from the New York Times were missing in Libya over the past day or so, but I just noticed via A Photo Editor that one of the missing photojournalists is Tyler Hicks, whom we've interacted with in the past. Snapped Shot hopes and prays that they will all be returned to civilization unharmed!

The newspaper said the four journalists are missing in a statement on March 16, 2011. From L-R: Photographers Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario, reporter and videographer Stephen Farrell, and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Shadid.
