In all seriousness, I'd only want them to be found dead. This is not a vindictive statement, but one based simple practicality. If either of these two are found and taken into custody alive, they (and the goal of their release) will become the poster child for every terrorist incident from then on.
I've actually wondered if the soldiers in the field have been instructed (maybe not officially, but perhaps with a wink and a nod) to not take either of these two into custody while they're still breathing.
