Quoting bex76

I can't find anything further when I do a google search - hopefully no news is good news.

I couldn't find anything more either, Bex. I did searches too before asking. I was hoping someone 'down under' had seen/read more news reports. These things tend to become items for the back pages as more and more time passes. Thanks for the reply. :)

It's hot news now because of the kidnapping of two tourists in the same region: 1 from the Netherlands and 1 from Switzerland. See this article

Terrible stuff. It's good to see some action is being undertaken, but there must be so much remote ground to look in!

Thank you, James. Let's hope a rescue is near and of a positive outcome.

OMG. I remember wocca on here a few years back. This is nuts. What was the story. How did he get in that situation to start with?. Suppose he was allways a out there type of dude from what I can remember.

Yikes!! This is kinda surreal. The infamous Wocca always seemed like an ethereal presence here on TP. Strange to read this. I very much hope he's alive and okay. :(

any more news on this?

I just checked the internet and found nothing new. But, that doesn't mean something hasn't come through on OZ news, etc.

I still hope things are okay. Granted, it's shit regardless because of his health issues, being kidnapped and being shot. Doesn't make for the best bargaining chip for money. Just release him and let him live his life.

If that happens (being released and alive), there will be a big hurray from me no matter what our differences had been in the past.
