2 Americans missing in Lebanon

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) -- The U.S. Embassy in Lebanon says two Americans are missing in Lebanon and is appealing for information on their whereabouts.

An embassy statement Wednesday says Holli Chmela, 27, and Taylor Luck, 23, have not been heard from since Oct. 1 when they reportedly left Beirut en route to the northern port city of Tripoli. Lebanese security officials told The Associated Press they are searching for the two.

The pair arrived in Lebanon on Sept. 29 from Amman, Jordan for a vacation and told a friend on Oct. 1 that they were traveling from Beirut to Tripoli that day.

They were then to cross by land to Syria before returning to Jordan where they were due to report to work on Oct. 4.
