17 year old Nicholas Joy of Medford, Massachusetts has been missing since Sunday afternoon, March 3, 2013 when he failed to meet up with his father during a family ski outing at Sugarloaf mountain in Carrabassett Valley, Maine. The Sugarloaf ski patrol, game wardens and others searched in-bounds and out-of-bounds areas on skis, snowshoes and snowmobiles. Temperatures on Sunday night were relatively warm, dropping into the mid-20s with light snow falling. According to news accounts, Joy skied with his father, Robert, in the morning and was last seen near the Timberline chairlift that reaches the top of the mountain.

Nicholas Joy of Medford, Mass., was reported missing Sunday afternoon after failing to meet up with his father, Maine Warden Service spokesman Doug Rafferty said.
The Sugarloaf ski patrol, game wardens and others searched in-bounds and out-of-bounds areas on skis, snowshoes and snowmobiles late Sunday afternoon and into the night before the search was suspended at 1 a.m. Monday because of poor visibility.
The search resumed at first light and continued until dark, when the search was suspended until morning, said Rafferty. The Warden Service did not use a plane during the search because of windy conditions.

Body in Clark Fork River in Montana Could be Missing Anaconda Woman, 41 Year Old Tammy Salle … Last Seen December 23, 2012
41 year old Tammy Salle was last seen on December 23, 2012 and was reported missing three days later on December 26. Police in western Montana have located a decomposed body found in the Clark Fork River south of Deer Lodge, MT that has tattoos matching those of a missing Anaconda woman. However, the body has yet to be positively ID’d as Tammy Salle. The body found Saturday is being sent to the state crime lab in Missoula. After Tammy Salle was reported missing on December 26, a sheriff’s deputy found an abandoned 2008 Grand Prix on December 28, which she reportedly had been driving, on a frontage road near the Racetrack interchange, south of Deer Lodge near Interstate 90. The vehicle was owned by her boyfriend John Goldberg. Before police could question him, on December 29, authorities found Goldberg dead in his 2010 GMC pickup truck parked at a truck stop west of Missoula, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He left a suicide note, but contained no reference of Tammy Salle’s whereabouts.
Missing Tammy Salle – Anaconda Police
A woman’s decomposed body found Saturday in the Clark Fork River south of Deer Lodge has tattoos that match those of Tammy Salle, who has been missing since late December, Anaconda Chief of Police Tim Barkell said.
The chief said a fisherman reported seeing a body hung up in a shallow area in the middle of the river, along Interstate 90, about 10 miles south of Deer Lodge, near Galen.
The call came in at 2:42 p.m. Saturday, he said.
The chief said authorities could not confirm that the body is that of Tammy Salle. The remains will be sent to the state crime lab in Missoula for that to be determined.
However, though the body had decomposed, Barkell said tattoos could be identified, and that they matched those of Salle.
Barkell said investigators suspect the body, which is intact, was dumped upstream and snagged on the shallow area.

Search Continues for Unidentified Family of Four, Including Two Children Missing at Sea West of Monterey Bay off the California Coast (Update: Hoax?)
The search continues for the unidentified family of four, including two children under the age of 8, who are missing at sea west of Monterey Bay off the Central California coast. The individuals are reported to have made their first distress call late Sunday afternoon aboard a 29-foot sailboat was taking on water and the electronics were failing. The Coast Guard released one of the family’s recorded distress calls ( http://bit.ly/W90cyv ), in hopes that it would lead to new information from the public that could help in the search.; however, the agency has received no reports of missing persons in the case. The agency believes the boat’s name was Charmblow. In the crackling recording, a man’s voice is heard saying, “Coast Guard, Coast Guard, we are abandoning ship. This is the (Charmblow), we are abandoning ship.” According to reports, they had no life rafts on board.
Authorities have turned to the public in hopes of identifying a family that sent a series of distress calls saying their boat was sinking far off the Central California coast.
“There is still no information on where the boat was coming from, where it was going or who the people on board are,” said Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Mike Lutz.
The unidentified family of four — including two children under 8 — had been sailing a small vessel Sunday west of Monterey Bay. Forecasters had issued a weekend advisory warning boaters of rough seas in the area, and water temperatures typically are in the 40s and 50s, making long-term survival difficult.
The group made its first distress call late Sunday afternoon, said Coast Guard Lt. Heather Lampert. Investigators used the boat’s radio signal and radar to determine the call came from an area about 60 miles west of Monterey.
The boaters reported that their 29-foot sailboat was taking on water and the electronics were failing.
VIDEO from ABC News.
The search for the presumed missing boat and the four unnamed individuals aboard has come to an end. The Coast Guard is questioning as to whether the claims of the missing boat was a hoax. There had been no reports of the missing family or any registration of the vessel in question.
Rescuers have stopped searching the cold Pacific Ocean for a couple, two young children and a sinking sailboat as questions of a hoax arise amid no reports of the missing family or any registration of the vessel in question.
The Coast Guard on Tuesday called off the search for a boat that reportedly sank in rough seas far off the Central California coast, saying nothing more could be done and that the family’s distress calls might have been a hoax.
“We’ve exhausted the possibilities,” Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Mike Lutz said. The Coast Guard is treating the incident as a rescue, with the possibility the calls came from a trickster.
Coast Guard Executive Officer Noah Hudson in Monterey said it was tough to call off a search, but that if it was a hoax, “it’s unfortunate that we were forced to use so many resources for so much time.”

Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand Go Missing While on Trip in Peru, Have Not Been Heard From Since January 25, 2013 (Update: Found Safe)
US State Department American joins in the search for the missing San Francisco couple in Peru.
Jamie Neal and her boyfriend Garrett Hand departed the United States in December for an biking adventure through South America. Their biking expedition was to take them through Argentina, Chile and Peru, as the couple chronicled their travels on Facebook. However, the two were last heard from on January 25, 2013. Jamie’s last communication with her sister Jennifer was on the 25th , in a Facebook post. Jamie Neal had posted numerous pictures along the way during the couples trip; however, they have suddenly stopped. Another alarming set of events is that Garrett’s cell phone simply goes to a recording.
KTVU reports, that the couple was last seen on January 26 taking a bus from Cusco to Lima and then getting in a cab. What is most amazing is the following from the KTVU article, “Although miles away from home, they were never more than a computer away from family and friends.” If that is what these two Americans thought or anything, past, present and future, you are delusional. Trust me from experience, when you are on such a vacation, you are all alone, by yourself. All the internet or cell phone does is chronicle your demise and potential last place you were at because by the time help comes, it is most likely going to be far too late.
Cycle enthusiasts Garrett Hand and Jamie Neal left the Bay Area in November for an adventure of a lifetime, a bike trek through South America. Although miles away from home, they were never more than a computer away from family and friends. The couple chronicled their travels on Facebook, but the photos and status updates stopped Jan. 25. “It’s upsetting, I’m worried about both of them,” said Jeff Jerge, owner of Pedaler Bike Shop.
FACEBOOK: American Citizen Services – U.S. Embassy Lima, Peru. The U.S. State Department has made a poster of Neal and Hand, while the U.S. Embassy in Peru’s website posted a travel warning for Americans.
February 13, 2013 The U.S. Embassy warns U.S. citizens of a potential kidnapping threat in the Cusco area. The Embassy has received information that members of a criminal organization may be planning to kidnap U.S. citizen tourists in the Cusco and Machu Picchu area. Possible targets and methods are not known and the threat is credible at least through the end of February 2013. For the moment, personal travel by U.S. Embassy personnel to the Cusco region, including Machu Picchu, has been prohibited and official travel is severely restricted as a result of this threat.

A U.S. Embassy warning to U.S. tourists of a potential kidnapping threat in the Cuzco region, including the famed Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, drew vehement objections from Peruvian officials Friday. But a U.S. Embassy official said credible evidence exists of a threat from a Peruvian terrorist group. The official confirmed a report in the Peruvian newspaper La Republica that said leaders of the cocaine-financed Shining Path outlaw band discussed kidnapping foreigners, principally Americans, in intercepted communications. Tens of thousands of Americans visit Peru each year.
UPDATE II: Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand Found Safe.
Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand have been found save traveling along the Navos River. They stated that they did not even know their families were looking for them. First let me state, I am glad they have been found safe and there was never any incident. That being said, are you serious! They kept in contact while traveling alone throughout South America on their biking trip constantly posting on Facebook, then go silent and out of contact for a month and they don’t think anyone is concerned or worried? REALLY? How would one not think that people are concerned that they have not heard from you in a month? This speaks volumes, doesn’t it.
A California couple thought to be missing for a month during a trip to Peru have been located aboard a boat – and they didn’t even know their families had been looking for them.
Jamie Neal, 25, and Garrett Hand, 27, from California’s Bay Area, left for Peru in December for a South America bike trip, and had not been in contact with friends and relatives since late January.
The couple was found on a boat that was traveling along the Navos River.

17 Year Old Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez Missing Since 2/22/13 in Watertown, CT … Belived to Have been Kidnapped (Update: Found Safe)
Missing: Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez
17 year old Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez has been missing since Friday, February 22, 2013 in Watertown, CT. She was last reported seen 2:30 p.m. when she left to go for a walk. According to a press release from the Watertown Police Department, shortly after leaving for her walk, Rodriguez texted her aunt, asking for help. According to accounts, “Nelly had then stated that a white male and a female, unknown to her, had taken her into the vehicle.” Watertown police also stated that aunt received several follow-up messages from Rodriguez’s phone; however, they were not sent by “Nelly” Rodriguez, but an unknown third party. The text messages claimed that they had Rodriguez in their custody. For some reason family members believe that Rodriguez may be headed to Massachusetts. That bit of information is a bit curious. How would the family know that her daughter and the kidnappers be headed to Massachusetts if the adductors are unknown?
Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez Description:
Rodriguez, 17, is a Hispanic female who is approximately 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 115 pounds and has dark brown hair and brown eyes. At the time of her last sighting, Rodriguez was wearing black spandex pants, khaki boots, white and leopard print shirt and a black coat with silver lines on it. Rodriguez also has a red heart tattoo under her left eye.
If anyone has any information on Rodriguez’s whereabouts is asked to call the Watertown Police Department immediately at 860-945-5200.
UPDATE I: Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez was found on Saturday safe. As stated above, it was a bit fishy that the family had suspected that she was being taken to Massachusetts, yet it was stated she was abducted. One would expect the police to follow up on this saying that she had never been kidnapped.
Police wouldn’t say at 1 p.m. Saturday whether she had actually been kidnapped. More information is expected this evening.
