    I just posted a link to this thread in the "Is Mexico Safe" thread. That thread is quite popular with riders who travel to Mexico.

    We were in this area months ago and would suggest looking at the Zipolite beach area...just n of P Angel. There are many inexpensive places that some people spend months at...including Cabanas la Habana. I know its a long shot...but in this area this is where people stay long term (Mexico usually issues a 6 month visa on arrival)

    I hope you find him soon!

    I hope that his phone is broke and he shacked up with a senorita.

    OP may have a typo, it says last seen Jan 2nd but the linked article says Jan 24th which would make a lot more sense.

    Hoping for the best here.

    Trying to spread the word...i saw this on my FB page. Hoping all is well
    "I need your help folks ! have a Canadian friend travelling on his motorcycle in Mexico. last heard from Jan 24 ! we are now VERY worried to say the least. this is totally out of character for this 60yr old man. he is alone, does not speak spanish well, and when last heard from was in Puerto Angel, about 200km south of Acapulco. his plan was to head toward Puerto Vallarta where he would meet up with friends. that was 12 days ago. his phone is turned off, and he has not been in his back account.
    what suggestions do you all have ? any would be appreciated… if you are in that area along Mex hwy 175 or 200 can you give me an idea of any ‘unrest’ in the area? thanks kindly

    I live in Puerto Vallarta and I will check out if I see or hear something from him.

    But I would suggest that riders do NOT take the road from Acapulco to Zihuatanejo and avoid the whole area between the 2 cities and the triangle up tu Iguala. The whole area is "Narco-Land" and the main poppy seed production area for Heroin. These guys there want no witnesses.

    He is hopefully enjoying the beach with a nice girl.

    Stay safe.

    Saludos Jürgen
