Washington, D.C. -The Broadcasting Board of Governors stepped up calls today for information on the whereabouts Bashar Fahmi. Tomorrow marks six months since the disappearance of the Alhurra TV correspondent.

Fahmi was reporting from Aleppo, Syria on Aug. 20, 2012 when he was caught in the crossfire that led to the murder of one journalist and capture of another. Very few clues have emerged concerning his whereabouts and wellbeing.

“It’s time for him to come home,”  said Michael Meehan, a member of the BBG Board and Chairman of the Middle East Broadcasting Networks, Inc. “These past six months have been heartbreaking for his family. And we are all very worried about him.”
