In the video, the group also shows journalist Steven Joel Soltoff, a journalist who worked for Time, The National Interest, and Media Line. He last tweeted on August 3, 2013. Soltoff went missing on August 4, 2013 outside of Aleppo, Syria. His family was aware of the situation and was advised not to publicize the information for his safety. He was held in Raqqa.

At that time, Balboni would not disclose the name, or names, of the "other American journalist" citing a "sensitive and complex" situation. If this is the case, it is unclear how Foley and Soltoff changed hands from the Syrian government to ISIL.
