Pine Belt man among Nigeria hostages

A Columbia, Mississippi, man is one of four men missing and believed kidnapped by armed militants off the southern coast of Nigeria. 

Chris Gay and the others were part of a Global Industries crew laying oil pipes for Chevron Oil. They were taken hostage after an assault on a construction barge in the Niger delta. 

Since February, officials say nearly 30 foreign workers have been kidnapped by the militant Nigerian group, which wants foreign companies out of the delta region.
