ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Iraqi insurgent group ISIS has apparently released a video threatening to behead a man they identified as Stephen Sotloff, who reportedly is a former University of Central Florida journalism major.

The man that ISIS identifies as Sotloff is seen in the same video that claims to show the beheading of journalist James Foley.

WKMG-TV confirmed with UCF that a student named Steven Sotloff did attend the Orlando university from 2002 to 2004.

The man reported to be Sotloff in the video is dressed in an orange jumpsuit and is being held by a militant dressed from head to toe in black clothing.

Both Sotloff and Foley disappeared while covering the war in Syria.
