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 state.gov 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 travel.state.gov 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.
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
Hi Rene....so glad you joined the site. I would love to talk to you about your friend and your efforts in dealing with the Mexican government. My husband, Ronald Scheepstra went missing in Xcalak, Mx April 11, 2009. You can contact me here or by email
