Maligning the Missing, Murdered, Injured, Victimized, and Their Families

It never fails.The moment an American or other foreigner comes to harm in an exotic locale, the first response of "community activists" is to undermine his/her story, to declare them unfit for public sympathy and their families unworthy of compassion and voluntary support.My brother was alternately declared a CIA agent and a narco trafficker because, 72 hours too late to be helpful, we were able to get U.S. aircraft launched to assist in the search for him off the island of Roatan, where he'd…See More

Hey Jeff I have a case of an american that we believed to be Frederick Beau Mix in mexico but turned out not to be , however he is an american, he clearly has some mental disease, possible schizophrenia and he calls himself, "wallace" or Henry" I have pictures and would love you to share, because he is CLEARLY amaerican, in Monterrey MX and homeless. They call him "Henry the Gringo" we have met him and I would love to know if there is a family out there missing this beautiful blue eyed man. The mexican government does not care about him, he clearly is american, they know he is, he has no passport and they laugh at him. However the local people love him.

Hi Jeff;

Yes & since I asked to join, we found out he is in prison in Dubai for taking photos in a restricted area. We were in touch with the Embassy who located him for us. He is an architect by trade (now a motivational speaker) who travels all over the world speaking.

He loves walking & taking pictures, esp. of interesting, architecturally, buildings. We know need to find how to get him released.
