(wgvu) - OXFORD, Mich. (AP) - Relatives and friends of a Michigan soldier
who was captured by Iraqi insurgents say they're holding out hope
that he's alive despite reports of his killing.
An al-Qaida-linked group posted a video saying it killed the
Michigan soldier and a comrade from Massachusetts.
The video showed personal items from the soldiers but did not
show their bodies.
A third captured soldier was found dead last month.
The military has briefed the family of 19-year-old Byron Fouty
of Waterford, Michigan, about the video.
His stepfather is Gordon Dibler (DYE'-blur) of Oxford.
Dibler told The Associated Press that he prays that his stepson
is still alive.
