    Mexico - Harry Devert, 32, Michoacan, 25 Jan 2014

    Harry Devert



    Westchester family sends emotional plea for missing son’s safe return from Mexico-

    Harry Devert, 32, from Pelham, New York has been missing since Jan. 25. Harry had embarked on a multi-continent motorcycle journey starting from New York City across the US before going to Mexico. His last message was via his phone when he told his girlfriend, Sarah on Jan. 25 at 3:18 EST on WhatsApp, he had been sent out of an area.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    American adventurer missing in Mexico

    (CNN) - Harry Devert's motorcycle journey from the United States to Latin America is somewhat reminiscent of "The Motorcycle Diaries," which recount the South American travels of revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara on an old motorbike in search of his insurgent spirit.


    But Devert, 32, who left a job as a trader in finance to travel the world, has not been in touch with his mother or girlfriend in New York since January 25. That day he sent girlfriend Sarah Ashley Schiear an ominous text via the WhatsApp messenger app.

    "Just got an hour and a half long escort out of some area it was too dangerous for me to be," the message said. "Stopping for lunch and ... voila Internet. ... Gonna get back on the road soon. Apparently there's another military escort waiting for me in some other town... I'm running way late because of the crazy military stuff...hopefully get a chance to talk to you tonight when I (hopefully) finally arrive."

    He had checked out of a bed and breakfast in the southwestern Mexican state of Michoacan and planned to travel to a beach in Zihuatanejo, on the Pacific coast, that was in the final scene of the film "The Shawshank Redemption," according to friends and family.

    What the heck? This guy looks a lot like Harry Devert. Someone posted this on his FB page, but there has been zero response to it.

    This guy turned up at a hospital in Michoacan and they are/were trying to identify him: http://www.ignaciomartinez.com.mx/no...conocido_34870



    Michoacan is where Harry was last at before he stopped communicating, right?

    He turned up at a hospital on Tuesday Feb. 4, about 10 days after Harry was last heard from. He was transported there by ambulance after having been found on the side of the street. They were trying to find out who he is. He is/was unconscious.
    Light brown skin, (medium complexion), straight nose, thin build and two tattoos - one a virgin Mary type tattoo and the others, the letters "MA" in capital letters on his left hand.

    I guess it is not him. It's not the same tattoos as Harry has. But I thought it was a great tip and I wondered why no one responded to it.

    I saw this too, and was freaking out, thinking it was him. What an odd coincidence.

    How scary, I pray for his loved ones that he is found alive.
    Don't mind the misspellings.

    According to family friend and spokeswoman Jackie Burrell, FBI officials were expected to call at 4 p.m. Tuesday with information after the federal agents were briefed in Washington, D.C.

    http://cortlandt.dailyvoice.com/news...ester-traveler
    "The family of missing Pelham native Harry Devert continued to search for answers Wednesday after never receiving an update they expected from government officials Tuesday."


    His postings in that travel blog Surfie mentioned are wonderful, I hope he's found safe.

    American adventurer Harry Devert missing in Mexico for nearly three weeks

    I was afraid that this might be the case:
    In Mexico, Interior Ministry officials told CNN that they have not yet confirmed that Devert is missing.

    Search for missing Pelham man Harry Devert continues in Mexico

    Search for missing Pelham man Harry Devert continues in Mexico -

    The mother of Harry Devert



    PELHAM -
    The desperate search continues for the Westchester man who has been missing in Mexico for more than three weeks. Family and friends of Harry Devert are now trying to get the attention of President Barack Obama with an online petition. The president is traveling to Mexico later this week and they're asking that for his help in the search for the Pelham man. It's been 23 days since anyone has heard from Harry Devert. The 32-year-old former online stock trader turned global explorer was headed to the World Cup in Brazil. His plan was to get there by taking a motorcycle trip through southern Mexico.

    People article

    American Traveler Goes Missing in Mexico – Was He Kidnapped?

    He went missing in a region where fighting has broken out between a powerful drug cartel and local vigilantes, and his final text messages referenced the danger. His mother, who originally feared he had gotten into an accident, has had a change of heart.

    "We now believe he has been taken by someone and is being held captive and is waiting for someone to find him," his mother Devert, 66, of Pelham, N.Y., tells PEOPLE.

    Devert says she could not elaborate on how she got that information, but American officials are working with Mexican authorities to find her son. "The U.S. Embassy is aware of reports that Mr. Devert has disappeared and is concerned for his safety," spokesman Noel Clay tells PEOPLE.
