Dear US Embassy, State Department, Consulate, Americian Citizen Services, Regional Security-Officers, FBI & Police,
I need your action and help in discovering what happened to JAMES ARMOUR HARWELL III, who disappeared while vacationing in Baja Mexico, at the HotSprings town of Ejido Uruapan, south of Ensenada, 1 month ago.
The PGJE Police unit of Maneadero, B.C. Mexico have now changed the status of this case from Missing Person to HOMICIDE.
James was last seen at 6pm Monday 16 April, 2018, when he left the HotSprings, intending to return to camp at their locked campground for the night.
He never made it back, His vehicle was car-jacked by 4 drug-gang criminals, who we learned are now bragging that they did this crime, and taunting the local Maneadero Police to “come and get them”.
It is the opinion of the PGJE Police unit of Maneadero, B.C. Mexico that the criminals dumped James body alongside a dirt road, not by digging a grave and burying him.
James elderly dog, Shandy was found the following morning, Tuesday 17 April, by a farmer working in a chile field. An article of James clothing was discovered about 100 ft from where Shandy was huddled next to the fenceline, next to the dirt road which passes by the field, and continues on up to the towns burn-dump, and then beyond into the hills.
His vehicle was found on Tuesday 24 April, stripped of all equipment and dumped in a wooded canyon several miles from the Hot Springs.
I need your actual help to bring whatever intelligence, manpower, ground drone-search, efforts to finding James body and bringing him home. This area is approximately a 100 miles from the US border, not half-way around the world.
PLEASE BECOME INVOLVED IN ANY SUBSTANTIAL WAY POSSIBLE. There are actions the US Regional Security Officer could take if they are willing to step in and make that a priority.
I am begging you to take some action and help us find James Harwell.
Respectfully, and with thanks,
