Reports are coming in that NBC's Richard Engel is now free from captivity after spending 5 days in the hands of an unknown group inside Syria. Engel was taken (along with several others) after crossing into Syria from Turkey.

Reports state that other than being blind-folded and bound, Engel and his 5 member production crew are unharmed. While in captivity, NBC states that there was no claim of responsibility and no demands for ransom.
