Kaare Lund, 53, a Norwegian national and ADRA director for Norway was in Liberia visiting projects aiding refugees when he and two Liberian co-workers encountered unexpected fighting near Toe Town.
The deaths of Lund's two Liberian co-workers, Emmanuel Sharpulo and Musa Kita, have already been confirmed.
Lund joined ADRA in 1989 to head up the agency's operations in Pakistan.
"Despite the very real and increasing dangers facing ADRA workers worldwide, we are committed to demonstrating God's love in a very practical way," Charles Sandefur, ADRA International president, says. "If confirmed, Kaare's death will be a further tragic blow, not just to ADRA but to the humanitarian community at large."
