Do you wish to be contacted directly by The Missing Americans Project? If so, please provide best way of reaching you below.
Not necessary, but would like to give encouragement to Jeff Dunsworthy that commented on my son's story in the Wall Street Journal---would like to express my sympathy for their heartache. Our reporter Nicholas Casey, of the WSJ did a nice job on my son's story, and would like to encourage them to contact him. We have been 7 months, and have not yet got our son out of prison in Mexico.

Hi Kevin...I just wanted you to know that there are many people praying for the release of your son. I am so glad that you joined the project. It has really taken on a life of its own including people from other countries with missing loved ones and as in the case of your son, the outrage that Mexico;s government is so corrupt and evil that something like this could happen to an innocent boy, just minding his own business. I have a special interest in Mexico. My husband went missing there Apr 11, 2009. I have been dealing with their government, as well as my own since then. Has there been any updates on the release of your son? I understand all too well the anguish of waiting to hear. I can't imagine how it would be if it were my child. As a fellow Texan, I just wanted you to know that I am here to help in any way I can. Jeff has been a great resource and has been such a help to me personally. He is getting ready to launch a campaign that will involve calling attention to people like Jeff and I, whose loved ones vanished. Hillary Clinton has the power to issue Presumption of Death to US citizens, Without this Presumption of Death, surviving family members can not collect life insurance or receive benefits that they so badly need. I am sure he will post something soon on the site regarding how we can help. God Bless you and your family and continued prayers for you and your son....Cindy Scheepstra
Kevin: Thank you so much for joining the project. I have read your story and already sent an e-mail to Nick Casey. If you could put in a word for us with him it might go far. I will reach out to you directly, as there are aspects of our missing persons stories that I have not wanted to report publicly.
Kevin, our prayers are with you and the family of the other wrongly arrested young man. Please consider The Missing Americans Project and its wider network a resource for your efforts.
