American Michael Sharp Kidnapped in Democratic Republic of Congo

An American was abducted while working as a United Nations official in central Africa, his father told NBC News on Tuesday.

Officials confirmed Monday that the team had disappeared in the country's Kasai Central province — although it was unclear when exactly the incident took place.
