A Russian journalist who went missing in Syria 10 days ago is reportedly alive and well.

Aleksandr Rybin is now in Turkey and will travel to Georgia, according to the editor in chief of the Tajik weekly "Business and Politics," for which Rybin works as a freelance reporter.

The editor, Dzhamshed Ulmasov, said he had received an e-mail message from Rybin.

There were no further details.

There had been no word from Rybin since January 20 when he left the Syrian seaside town of Latakia.
