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.
I live in Alabama and Natalie Holloway was a big deal, but I didn't realize the extent of this problem until researching it after seeing Gone about Aeryn Gillern. I was outraged by his story as a mother myself and was so angry with the treatment his case and mother got by the Austrian officials. I want to do something to raise awareness. I am looking into awareness ribbons, is red or green the color for the ribbon?
I need to hook up with someone like Carole Moore here on your comments that can write abo my brother missing in another country on a magazine. If u have contacts too for sponsorship of billboards we would really be grateful. Thanks
I actually have a petition on change.org that my goal is to collect 1,000,000 votes to show the government that he is of high importance to the community. Can u help me post on your website to gather votes. I know that it can be done. I have a "groups" page created on facebook as well as a a webpage where we are gathering donations the continue with the "out of our pocket search" since my brother is not as important to the us gov. Jeff we are desperate and all the help we can get us greatly appreciated. I have written to the media; 20/20 good morning America, CNN etc... And is like my letters go to their pile of garbage.

As I mentioned before I work Full-time and the Internet is all I got to be heard. If you can please help us, and as usual we are forever grateful for thinking of us.
Thanks, Jeff. I want to feature Joe in the story I am writing for a magazine that is distributed to business travelers (and those who have been relocated in other countries by their businesses) around the world. I am also looking for individuals who have gone missing in other countries while there on business, if you know of anyone interested in a brief interview. It's a good chance to get some eyes on their stories, but I have to do the interviews very early next week to get them in.
I was just hoping on your next webpage update you could put a share on Facebook link. I can't really comment at the sadness that goes on and on, but maybe we could get the word out a little more on Facebook. Hats off to your work.
I am an ex-military security forces officer (12 year Air Force veteran) and have served in Desert Storm and several other campaigns across the planet. I lived in Colombia (jungles) for a year, Panama for a year and in the Middle East for 2 years.
I am now the VP of Intelifuel and spend most of my time in Quito. I am a registered warden with the US Embassy in Quito. I have satellite communications, transportation and a large house - all of which I will volunteer for people engaged in searching for any missing American in Ecuador.
I have contacts with the Ecuadorian Special Forces and private security companies as well.
If there ever comes a time when my time, equipment or services is necessary to help look for any American missing in Ecuador - contact me. I'll do everything I can.
I was disappointed that nothing was said in the news around the area in which she was missing. She is in the hospital doing good and her Dad is flying over there to take her home. She went missing in one of the museums
