Profile Information

Have you lost a friend or family member outside the U.S.?
If yes, in what country or area was the person last seen?
Matamoros, Tamaulipas, MX
What is your interest in the Missing Americans Project?
We are looking for John Edward Parks, US citizen, living in Matamoros, MX, who disappeared around the time of the latest upheaval in that city between the Mexican Navy and Marines, and the Gulf Cartel and Zetas on Nov. 5, 2010. More than 100 civilians have been killed so far. He is my business partner in an online hosting and design service. Another who will join is his mother who also lives here in the valley in Harlingen. We have been in touch with the consulate in Matamoros, but so far, all they can tell is that he is not in any hospital. We've asked them to check jails and morgues, but they say they have to "wait for the authorities" Because of his military background, we are afraid that something has happened to him. His mother has since died without any knowledge of what has happened to her son.

Hello Renee:

Thank you for concern and I will be safe.  I have been doing business across Mexico since 1999.  Fortunately until now I have been safe and faced no incidents.  However, I have retained a security firm.  Security is now priority.  My heart goes out to all who have lost loved ones.  Blessings:)

My son is not missing. He passed  away Sept. 15th 2010. Since that time at the invitation of the US Embassy in San Jose Costa Rica I spoke to an assembled audience solely for all the murders, missing people etc .  The country specific tab in was rewritten with Chad's case in mind. I also spoke in Senator McConnell's office in Washington

 and at the suggestion of legislature Reb Brownell filled a course of action facilitated through Senator McConnell,s office which was denied. After working with Congressman John Yarmuth a new section to is being added called "Best Practices for International Sending Agencies" which was a step in the right direction but most people are not aware that the site even exists. I am looking for Allies for this goal.

Thank You,

Steve Priest

John has touched alot of our lives.  Even those of us that only know him onine he just has a way of making your day brighter and always making you feel like you are important. He is a wonderful, caring and giving person. I can't wait for him to be found and back online again! We all miss him so much!!!

I am at a loss at how to even start looking for my son.  Its like he stepped across the mexican border and dissappeared.   If anyone has suggestions for me - American embassy, whatever, let me know.    I'm so scared that something has happened to him.   Thanks
