A CNN  journalist was kidnapped by gunmen while covering the latest Malaysian Airlines crash in Ukraine.
Anton Skiba has been working as a freelancer for CNN.
He's still in detention after being abducted by pro-Russian separatists.
The seperatists have claimed Skibo posted cash rewards on his Facebook page for assassinations.
The US ambassador to Ukraine has demanded his immediate release.
Since his detention, CNN has attempted through a number of different separatist officials to secure Skiba's freedom.
The network is now publicly asking those who are holding Skiba to release him, after private meetings to secure Skiba's freedom failed.
