The parents of Austin Tice, the American journalist believed to be held in Syria, will travel to Lebanon to make an appeal for their son's release. A video surfaced on YouTube in September that appeared to show a blindfolded Tice being led by men armed with machine guns and a grenade. Many questions still surround the video, and Tice hasn't been heard from on social media since August 11. Above, Tice appears with a Syrian rebel.
Here's a look at some of the other stories CNN plans to cover this week.
