A forum representing families of the missing and the hostages being held by terror groups say they have transferred medical details and medicines used by their loved ones to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Yesterday the ICRC reiterated that it was trying to gain access to the estimated 150-200 hostages.

“Our hearts go out to people who lost family members or are worried sick about loved ones taken hostage. We reiterate our call for their immediate release and stand ready to conduct humanitarian visits,” the ICRC said.

The families forum said the effort began last night and they were currently working to make contact with other families to ensure that all the information was passed on.

Several of the captives are believed to be elderly and children.
