    This photo posted on the website shows journalist James Foley in Aleppo, Syria, in September, 2012. The family of an American journalist says he went missing in Syria more than one month ago while covering the civil war there. A statement released online Wednesday by the family of James Foley said he was kidnapped in northwest Syria by unknown gunmen on Thanksgiving day.

    A journalist killed by Islamic State militants, a police officer fatally shot at a Brentwood home and a 6-year-old girl who saved her grandfather's life in Alton are among those being honored as heroes by the American Red Cross.

    The Heroes Breakfast recognizes people who made a difference by performing acts of courage or selflessly giving their time and efforts to benefit others.

    Those being honored Thursday include James Foley, whose killing last year was the first in a series of grisly videos depicting the radical group's slayings of several Western hostages.

    Officer Stephen Arkell, responding to a domestic violence call last May, was gunned down by a man who later set the house ablaze, killing himself. And Jacey Montague called 911 after a tree fell on her grandfather.
