(CNN) — Kayla Mueller, a 26-year-old humanitarian worker from Prescott, Arizona, was taken hostage in August 2013 in Aleppo, Syria, as she left a Doctors Without Borders hospital, her family said through a spokeswoman on Friday.

ISIS claimed on Friday that Mueller had been killed in a Jordanian airstrike on Raqaa, Syria. The posting showed a picture of a collapsed building where the group said she was being held, but showed no proof of her death. Jordanian Interior Minister Hussein Majali called the posting a “low PR stunt.”
