My brother Asher Green has been missing in Peru since Nov. 3rd. In his last email on the evening of the 3rd from the town of Chivay (near Arequipa) he said he’s leaving the next day to trek in Colca Canyon for approximately a week. We haven’t heard from him since. Police expeditions into the canyon and large scale investigations have given us no trace of him. Two members of the family are at the canyon at the moment conducting more searches. If you saw him or have any advice or help to offer please contact us immediately.
Description: He is around 175 cm tall, well built - a bit chubby, green eyes, short light brown hair. He has a big scar on his right cheek. He is traveling with an American passport, as well as an Israeli one. He speaks fluent American English and Hebrew, some Spanish.

I am very sorry that your brother is missing. I do hope the search for him is successful and he is safe and sound.
In accordance with the Forum Rule #5, personal contact information can not be posted in the open forum and it has been removed from the above post. This is just a protection of your personal privacy. I understand your situation and any member who may have information about your brother can contact you through the TP Message Center. You can pass along your e-mail address and phone number using that system. I do recommend having the system notify you through your regular e-mail account when a personal message through TP has been sent to you. That can be done from your TP message center.
Also, I linked the photographs of your brother so members can just click on the link rather than copy/paste the URL.
Again, I do hope your family will be reunited soon.
I understand. I subscribed to this post so I should be notified of any replies. Could you possibly make this post a "sticky"? it's very important it reaches as many travellers as possible.
Thank you very much,
Hannah, as you see the thread has been stickied. Once again, I hope all turns out well and very soon.
we go to Arequipa tonight so we'll see what we can do to help out. Maybe put some posters up in the hostels etc.
I did notice that your brother was on the Peruvian News the other day and his picture was all over most of the media so hopefully someone will find him safe and sound.
If there's anything we can do for you while we're there, drop me a line (No problems what so ever)
Dear Hannah, My Prayers are with you, your family and your brother.
My prayers go out to your brother, you and your family. I truly hope all goes well.

I've just read the post and likewise i would like to wish you the best of luck and hope your brother turns up safely asap, ive been to Colca Canyon myself so i have some idea of the surroundings, there are always many people around so i hope some good news comes about soon.
Please update us with fresh information, I hope he´s ok, I connect my students web sending your search....
just thought I´d update the thread with what we´ve heard and seen down here in Arequipa.
The search still contnues and the dissapearance of Asher is still in the news (albeit not the top story unfortunately).
There are posters all over town and in most of the tour agencies and they´re offering a reward for any information regarding his dissapearance.
We´ve asked around and no one has seen or heard anything, but the good news is that the search continues so where there´s hope, there may be life.
We leave tonight, however, If I hear anything or see anything I´ll update the thread ASAP.
