    Family of missing Canadian start Mexican search

    The disappearance of an Ottawa-area businessman in Mexico has prompted his family to fly south to organize a search for him.

    Family of Daniel Dion say he was last heard from while at a restaurant in Acapulco on Friday. He didn't make it to a business appointment the next day and his credit cards haven't been used since.

    OTTAWA An eastern Ontario man attending a showcase in Mexico hasn't been seen or heard from seen since last Friday and his family is now fearing the worst.

    Daniel Dion went to Acapulco three weeks ago to showcase eco-purses he designs.

    Family members said the 51-year-old normally calls family including his wife frequently while away. But on Friday, Dion's contact with his family stopped.

    Dion, of Carleton Place, about 50 kilometres southwest of Ottawa, was scheduled to visit his lawyer Friday night or Saturday morning, but he never showed up, his family said.

    Daniel Dion, 51
    from Carleton Place, eastern Ontario
    went missing while on a business trip to Acapulco, MEXICO.
    He was last heard from Friday, Oct. 22, 2010.

    Eastern Ontario businessman missing in Mexico
    Canada's department of Foreign Affairs is investigating after an eastern Ontario businessman disappeared while on a business trip to Mexico.

    Daniel Dion, 51, of Carleton Place, was supposed to return home from a trip to Acapulco on Tuesday. However, he was not on the plane. His family last heard from him when he called his wife on Friday night.

    The following day Dion didn't show up to a business meeting, which is highly unlike him. He also hasn't made any credit card transactions since last week.

    Dion runs an eco-purse business based in Mexico. His family told CTV Ottawa the fabric used to make the purses is bought in Mexico, and the purses are made by Mexican prisoners.
    Dion, who has a home in Carleton Place, also has an apartment in Mexico. He is originally from Sherbrooke, Quebec.

    Family of Daniel Dion say he was last heard from while at a restaurant in Acapulco on Friday.
    Dion is a frequent traveller to Mexico and very familiar with Acapulco.

    "It's completely strange, it's not like (he was) a simple tourist who isn't careful," his niece said Thursday.

    Now, fraught with worry but determined to find answers, four members of Dion's close family are in Acapulco meeting with Mexican authorities.
    Dion had been in Mexico since September 28. He is the CEO of Mexican-based company Ecopurse, which uses recycled materials to make purses. His family says he is also an influential businessman who knew many high-level government officials, including the country's president.
    The family is also asking the public for help. His niece said she had created a website (finddanieldion.com) (link below) where latest updates on the search will be shared and through which people can contact her family.

    Sherbrooke man missing in Mexico

    http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/...736/story.html

    Daniel Dion was the kind of man who called or texted his wife often, as much as 30 times a day. But the well-connected Sherbrooke native who was on a business trip in Mexico hasn’t been heard from for a week.

    Family members in Montreal were fearing the worst Thursday.

    While Acapulco remains a popular getaway for Mexico City residents and foreign tourists, it has been hit by drug-gang violence in recent years.

    Fighting between two rival factions of the crumbling Beltran Leyva drug cartel has resulted in shootouts and deaths, and Mayor Jose Luis Avila Sanchez has warned people to stay indoors after dark — an extraordinary pronouncement for a city whose economy depends deeply on nightclubs, restaurants and bars.

    "The message is for everyone in Acapulco to keep working ... and avoid going out at night, avoid nightly activities whenever possible," Sanchez told reporters Wednesday night.

    At least six people were killed in Acapulco on Wednesday, including three men and five women whose bodies were found bound and blindfolded.

    And authorities are investigating the Sept. 30 disappearance of 20 men were visiting Acapulco from the city of Morelia, in neighbouring Michoacan state. Michoacan is dominated by the rival La Familia cartel, raising suspicions about a visit by such a large group of men travelling without their families. Michoacan officials insist they were simply on vacation.

    This certainly is a scary thing to happen for a family. Here is a man who calls home 50 times a day and is coming home for his birthday. He knows many high level Mexican officials.
    But, LE in Mexico won't help look for him.
    I hope his family is checking in with all of his friends.

    Mexican police won’t search for Carleton Place man


    http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/Me...470/story.html




    OTTAWA-Police in Mexico are refusing to help find a Carleton Place businessman who has been missing since he ate dinner at a restaurant in Acapulco a week ago, his family says.

    As a result of Daniel Dion’s disappearance, his distraught wife and brother have flown to Mexico to join in the growing search for Dion, who turned 51 last week. But they have been met with resistance by Mexican police.

    “They basically (told) the family to do the investigation yourself,” Dion’s niece, Franceska Dion, said in an interview Thursday night.

    “This is completely unacceptable.”

    The family of an Ottawa-area businessman missing in Mexico has discovered someone tried to use his credit card after he went missing.

    The credit card transaction was denied, but Daniel Dion's family hopes it will lead to new information about his whereabouts.

    Family have discovered he left a restaurant at 3:00am and had $41,000 in cash on him. Family does not know why he would have that much cash on him.

    ..It sure seems like there is a clear motive for robbery and kidnapping...

    Thanks Tara; had been checking those videos. Those purses are very time-consuming to make. The barcodes one is interesting. They plant a tree for every purse that is sold.
    Click on the youtube link itself, if that song doesn't let you listen to what the girl is saying

    Here is the link to yet another small business Daniel Dion runs. Apparently, he was looking for new plywood suppliers for his Shed Ottawa business, and he was going to meet a new supplier Saturday in Chilpancingo, about an hour away from Acapulco.
