19 Year Old Bailey Meola & Sydney Schumacher from Seattle, WA Still Missing in Nepal Trekking the Langtang Valley Trail
Two teens from Seattle, Washington, 19 year old Bailey Meola and Sydney Schumacher, have been missing since April 25, 2015 in Nepal. According to the family, an anthropologist reported seeing the two on April 24, just one day before a 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal and aftershocks destroyed nearby villages. The two girls had been trekking the Langtang Valley trail; however, on Tuesday, the family received news that the girls are not in the village, Kyanjin Gumba, where it had been reported that there were no known survivors.
The death toll from the earthquake in Nepal has risen to more than 4,600 — and many more people are unaccounted for, including two teens from Seattle.
The Meola and Schumacher families are staying optimistic that they will find their 19-year-old daughters, Bailey Meola and Sydney Schumacher.
The teens had just graduated from Garfield High School and were taking an around-the-world trip, with a stop in Nepal.
Both young women are described as experienced hikers, who began exploring the outdoors when they were toddlers. The teens are trained in first aid and CPR, their parents said.
“The odds of them being injured are very high if they were in Langtang, but people have survived in that area. They’ve gotten out of the avalanche,” said Rachelle Brown, Bailey’s mother. “We’re just very optimistic. We think our girls have the resources. They have the skills. They have the experience.”
Both girls are traveling around the world after graduating from Seattle’s Garfield High School in 2014. Meola started her trip in Thailand earlier this year, also visiting Singapore, Cambodia, and Laos. She wanted to take a “gap year” and explore the world before heading to college, her parents said.
The families have turned to social media for help, hoping for word of the girls’ safety through Twitter or other forums. They’ve been using a Facebook page for people missing in the Langtang Valley, along with a Google spreadsheet.
The Parents of Missing Madeleine “Maddy” McCann Win Libel Case Against Former Portuguese Detective Goncalo Amaral, ‘The Truth of the Lie’
Parents win libel case, but sadly Madeleine McCann still missing …
The parents of Madeleine McCann, Kate and Gerry McCann, have won their libel case against former Portuguese detective, Goncalo Amaral, who published a book alleging they were involved in their daughter’s disappearance. The book was entitled, ‘The Truth of the Lie’. The McCann’s were seeking 1.2 million euros in damages from Amaral, who was part of the police investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance from a vacation home in Praia da Luz, Portugal in May 2007. However, received 500,00 euros, but didn’t grant the other claims. The 52-page court ruling, handed down Monday, also prohibited the sale of Amaral’s 2008 book The Truth of the Lie. In his book, Amaral reportedly wrote that the McCann’s had hidden their daughter’s body and faked an abduction after she died in an accident.
The parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann have won 500,000 euros — $549,000 — in a libel action against a former Portuguese detective who published a book alleging they were involved in their daughter’s disappearance, according to a Lisbon court ruling published Tuesday.
The McCanns were seeking 1.2 million euros in damages from Goncalo Amaral, who was part of the police investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance from a vacation home in Portugal’s Algarve region in May 2007, days before her fourth birthday.
The claim included amounts for the parents as well as for Madeleine and her younger twin brother and sister.
The court decided to award 250,000 euros each to Kate and Gerry McCann, but didn’t grant the other claims. It said Kate and Gerry were “totally destroyed” and “depressed” by Amaral’s allegations and felt “ashamed” that they might appear to have been to blame for their daughter’s disappearance. They say Madeleine was abducted.

Though the lead was not promising they decided to search the area with side-scanning sonar, which provides a relatively clear picture underwater, so the area could be ruled out if the search proves fruitless.
