Missing... Harry Devert

Does anyone have any info on him? Was he an inmate?

I'm not sure if anyone has posted about him yet so please reply with a link if there is?

Lets just hope that he is found safe.

They had a piece on him on tonight's Providence RI news... don't know anything about him... he shoulda been on here, though, from what I understand!!

I decided never to travel in Mexico again after reading "God's Middle Finger", written about 10 years ago. Mexico is much worse today, especially in Michoacan (sp?). I sure hope he makes it out OK, but I fear the worst.

I saw the story today. Interesting. Wouldn't keep me from going, but possibly unfortunate for him. Hopefully he's sitting on a beach with a cold beer.

I just heard about him on a piece on NPR here in NYC. Sounds like it was his first real motorcyle trip of any kind- wow. Hoping he's OK and going to reappear soon.

does not sound good to be riding in areas which need military escorts....

He sounds smart enough to find this site or bike-specific ones with trip-reports and basic how-to's (hope he could change a tire tube or fix/replace a chain). He'd be worrying his family a lot less if he had taken the "beaten path" with some experienced riders, first.

Hope the US State Dept. is watching this. If he's found any more damaged than roughed up, bike-less, money-less, and smarter, time for an intervention of sorts.

Update...

I have found and read most of the other post in the Latin America pages. It seems like someone reached out to him to join advrider but hadn't gotten to it as of yet.
Again, I hope that he returns home safe.

I did reach out to the family because some of the questions from our Latin America inmates needed answers. Like current clothing, people he was in touch with and current bike pics. They have thanked advrider and plan to post anything they have.

Hope he's okay. Communication from down there can sometimes be a royal pain in the ass. Both times driving through both mainland Mexico & Baja There were many roads where I'd take a quick peek over the edge & think anybody going off the road at those sections may not be found for a very long time. Also both times it would sometimes take days to be able to make contact with home. Other times it was instant. That was a while ago, no idea what it's like down there now.

Hoping for a happy outcome

To find out he's chilling on the beach somewhere would be great news, no matter how much it might piss off those concerned, it would be great news.

Damn, Clown.....

Hope our inmates south of the boarder can help. I wouldn't mind doing a trip to Mexico or further south, but I sure as hell wouldn't do it alone for many reasons.
