A year later, Jesse Galganov's mom seeks answers: 'I have to keep going'
Where are you Jesse?

Jesse Galganov's family holding bazaar to fundraise and bolster search efforts
On Sunday, family and friends of Jesse Galganov will hold a bazaar to raise funds to continue search efforts to find him.
Alisa Clamen hired an Israeli search and rescue company to help locate her son. She estimates that it’s cost her over $2 million. “That’s an underestimate,” she said. “I can’t even tell you what [the costs] have been because it’s just been paying.”
Both Clamen and Jesse’s father, Todd Galganov, have travelled to Peru. Todd even offered a reward of $500,000.
Sunday’s bazaar will feature a raffle and bake sale, plus an online auction of author Scott Turow’s complete body of work.
Clamen is also hoping to prevent others from going missing in the park. In December, American woman Carla Valpeoz went missing in the country.
“I’m going to institute proceedings against the Huascaran National Park,” she said. “It’s a dangerous place and I don’t want other people to go missing.”
Clamen’s realistic but optimistic she will find closure. "Not so hopeful that we will find him alive, but I think we’ll bring him home,” she said.
Jesse Galganov, disappeared while backpacking in the Peruvian mountains in 2017, have become like a second family for Carla's brother.

``In long phone conversations with the Valpeoz family, Ayala Leon has guided them while they navigate through red tape, deal with calls from shamans looking to take advantage of them and look for experts to help in Carla's search.
She and Alisa Clamen of Canada, whose 22-year-old son, Jesse Galganov, disappeared while backpacking in the Peruvian mountains in 2017, have become like a second family for Carla's brother.
"The pain is the same, different circumstances, but the pain is still there," Carlos Jr. said. "I could never repay them for the amount of love, support and information that they've given me."
Jesse and his family are friends of a friend of mine. It's just so tragic and sad that they have no information about him.
