The Muslim Brotherhood is an extremist group that has done a lot of terrorist operations in Syria in the 80s and are hence outlawed and pursued and prosecuted wherever they are found. Trying to do business with them is a bad bad idea. Not only is this dangerous, but it will make the goverment very suspicious of you. They may even think your whole ordeal is a plot to get into Syria and cause them problems.

Re: Muslim Brotherhood
Absolutely agree. I wrote the post above called 'be careful'.
Matt, I think it is VERY unlikely that the MB took her. They are not into that kind of thing in Syria and trying to contact them is asking for problems with the Syrian govt. whom you want to keep on the good side of. The MB in Syria is a different situation than say the MB in Egypt which, although outlawed, is somewhat tolerated. Understand that the MB is persona non grata by the Syrian govt. and will indeed make them suspicious of you. Not to mention, because you are ..shall we say a novice in this area, you are likely to get ordinary Syrian people who have or want to help you in big trouble or more scared to help you. Please take this off your blog.
As I said, anyway, I don't think the MB would be involved - it is not their type of thing in Syria. As far as I know, they have not been known to do this at all.
IMO, as mentioned, your best bet by far is to pursue the sex slaver angle.
Do NOT pursue the MB angle - it will get you nowhere most likely except a big problem with the Syrian govt.
Take it off your blog and if there is more information later then you can think about pursuing that angle but right now, just throwing it up there like that is likely to cause you more problems. JEEZ!
