The e-mails are alphabetized by the missing person's last name.

I'm searching for my nephew, Abhay Chaudhary, and his friend, Gopal, from India. They are working as seamen on the ship named Julia. Last month, this ship reached Somalia from United Arab Emirates and was still there. Now we have no contact with them. I have one number of the ship's captain, but it's not working from India. Please provide any information you get from this. We are eagerly waiting for any positive news.

Her name is Bernadette Kathryn and perhaps on her passport it is Bernadette Kathryn Sneeringer. She was on a diving trip off the coast of east Africa but exact location unknown. I think she was diving with a New York City/Manhattan outfit called Pan Aqua. I have tried calling them to no avail. Bernadette is 41 years old; about 5'3"; weighs about 120 lbs; olive skin; light brown hair. She was diving with 2 friends named David & Seth whose last names I don't know. Frantic. Help. Thanks.
