Hello this is a serious request. I want to know if anyone who has travelled from the states to Brazil from November 1st, 2007 to November 6th has run into a traveller named David Wieler. He most likely took off from New York state. He has been missing since November 6th. I believe that he was travelling alone. He was travelling to Sao Paolo, Brazil, and then was to head off to Rio and then to Paraguay to see some family. He was supposed to reach family in Paraguay around the 13th of November. No one has heard or seen him since the 8th of November. I will upload a picture later when i can. He is from Manitoba. He is a trucker, kind of a loaner. when last he spoke to any family member here in Canada, he was in Sao Paolo, staying at a hostel (apparantly).
If anyone out there has seen a blonde male about 5ft 11 inches, about 200 lbs and has hazel eyes. he has thinning of the hair in the front. please post any information that you have.
We greatly appreciate any information that you may have.
