Dominican Republic - D'Arcy Wright, 46, Sosua, 19 Dec 2009
This is a friend of a family member. He is a Canadian living in Sosua, Dominican Republic and has been missing since Wednesday December 19, 2009. Here's an article on him, Search intensifies for missing Canadian near Puerto Plata. And a local article, Hamilton man goes missing in paradise.
There doesn't seem to be much information out there, there is a facebook page for him. He's a great guy, friendly and happy. Not sure what else I can add.

A new article today Account will help fund search in Dominican Republic for missing Hamilton man
Of interest in the article...
Suzuki said police have questioned a suspect who was in custody, but she has no idea how it turned out. A trace has now been done on Wright's cellphone, which may help shed light on two calls made from his phone after he disappeared.

Missing Hamilton man found
December 28, 2009
D'Arcy Wright has been found.
It is reported that he is alive and well.
Wright's sister, Patricia, told CHCH-TV that her brother had been kidnapped at gunpoint from his home in the Dominican Republic by two men in what he believes was a case of mistaken identity. He was heavily drugged when he was released about four days ago, and he remains groggy, she said.

Wright will stay in DR despite ordeal
The Hamilton Spectator
(Dec 30, 2009)
A Hamilton man who was found after mysteriously disappearing for 18 days in the Dominican Republic says it won't alter his plans to live there and set up a new life.He says police are treating his ordeal seriously and that he has "spent quite a substantial amount of time with a variety of ranking officers." The RCMP sent an officer to assist local police.
He doesn't believe authorities doubt his story and calls those "ridiculous" who might question it and suspect it is a hoax.
