EGYPT (CNN) -- Egyptian security services are intensifying efforts to get a pair of kidnapped Americans and their tour guide released. That's according to Egyptian state media.

The push comes after authorities received confirmation that the trio was still in the area where they were abducted.

The family of one of the kidnapped Americans identified their loved one as Michel Louis. He is a pastor from Dorchester, Massachusetts.

Authorities say the tourists and their guide were kidnapped Friday in the Sinai region of Egypt. Kidnappings and armed robberies have increased since a popular uprising ousted Egypt's long-ruling dictator, Hosni Mubarak, last year.
