Times Picayune Reporter Found

Staff at the New Orleans Times Picayune received a shot of good news this afternoon, when editor Jim Amoss talked to missing Times Picayune reporter Leslie Williams for the first time since the reporter went missing on Thursday while covering Katrina along Mississippi’s Gulf Coast.

“This is best news I’ve heard in days,” Mr. Amoss said by phone Sept. 5. “He was covering the story from Mississippi under hellacious conditions. He was on assignment and we’re just now hearing from him, we haven’t had a chance to debrief him yet.”
