Iraq hostage

We're reporting in Monday's edition that a local man, Douglas Wood, age 63, of Alamo, was abducted by insurgents. His capture was broadcast today. His wife, Pearl, saw the videotape and confirmed it was her husband. Wood is an Australian-born engineer who has been in Iraq for about 18 months. Reporter Guy Ashley and Sunday editor Scott Marshall are working the story. We're getting comment from his friends and family, who live in and around Alamo. Alamo is a short distance from our Walnut Creek headquarters in the East Bay. We will play the story on our Monday front page.
