Dorothy's family talks to Al Jazeera

Family of reporter Dorothy Parvaz, missing since travelling to Syria on April 29, are desperate to hear she is safe.

    Al Jazeera journalist Dorothy Parvaz has been missing since April 29, when she travelled to Syria to report on the uprising there.

    There have been conflicting reports about what has happened to her. Syrian authorities first said she was being held in Damascus, but Syrian officials later said they had deported her to Iran.

    Dorothy's father, Fred Parvaz, and Todd Barker, her fiancé, spoke to Al Jazeera and said they hoped she was being treated "with dignity and respect, mercy and compassion".
