Four New York Times journalists who went missing while covering Libya earlier this week have been found, the paper reported Friday.

The journalists โ€” Beirut bureau chief Anthony Shadid, photographers Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario and reporter and videographer Stephen Farrell โ€” were captured by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi and were set to be released Friday, his son told Christiane Amanpour in an interview for ABC News.

The reporters last had contact with editors on Tuesday when they were covering rebels' retreat from the northern port city of Ajdabiya.

Government officials told the U.S. State Department Thursday night that the four would be released.
