WESTPORT - Officials say the four New York Times journalists who had gone missing in Libya, including two from Westport, have been located.

The Times says Westport natives Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario were on assignment in Libya when they were captured by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi.

The two local journalists are graduates of Staples High School.

Once the two are safely back in the United States, school officials say they're planning to invite both journalists to speak with students at the high school.
