Kidnapped Americans still imperiled

Nigeria - Two Americans are still missing after they kidnapped by pirates off the coast of Nigeria.

 Military officials say when pirates stormed the American supply ship "C-Retriever," they divided crew members by nationality, and took the only two Americans onboard. The two are the ship's captain and chief engineer.
A government official says they are treating the case as a potential kidnapping for ransom, not an act of terrorism. This means it's more likely they'll try and get them back through negotiation as opposed to attempting a rescue.
