    I ran across this message on another forum. It's from someone called Akha. A username for someone conducting a search probably on behalf of the parents. It goes like this....

    About Ryan Chicovsky, missing from guesthouse Khem Khong, Xiengkok, Laos, March 13. We are looking for anyone who has information about his whereabout, anyone who was staying in the town at this time. There was a bimonthly trade fair taking place. Also we are hoping to find a Dutchman, perhaps with a limp traveling with a Japanese woman who planned to take a boat down the Mekong with Ryan on March 14 to Luang Prabang. Please contact. Thank you.
