Since their freelance journalist son vanished in Syria six years ago Marc and Debra Tice’s world has been turned upside down but have not wavered in their fight to bring him home
One month ago, Debra and Marc Tice flew to New York to tell the story of their son’s disappearance. In a conference room at United Nations headquarters, in front of a dozen journalists, they projected his photograph on to a screen. It showed a young man standing on the crest of a mountain, smiling and unshaven, with a pair of sporty sunglasses crowning his messy brown hair.
“Please allow us to introduce our son, Austin Tice,” Debra Tice said into a microphone.
