Important update

As of today, June 13, Ryan's family has not seen him in two years.

This photo of Ryan was taken by his mother in Seattle as he left for Western Washington's summer session in Bejing and Kunming, China.

In addition, the US Embassy in Laos has updated Ryan's flyer to include information and "Large Reward" in four languages. It can be found here and on the embassy website, as listed on the left.

The FBI has included Ryan on their "Missing Person" data base and he soon will be on the "Missing Person website."

Since Ryan will now be seen by potentially many more people we have included additional photos of him.

This is the last photo taken of Ryan; it is from March 13, 2006.

All these photos were taken with Ryan's camera, which we recovered. Please remember that Ryan may look very different now; he may have longer hair and a beard and he may be very thin.

We, Ryan's family, would be very grateful of any assistance in locating him. We love him very much and miss him terribly. Thank you.

Dear Dave and Judy,

We are sorry to hear that Ryan has gone missing and we hope that someone will come forward with some news.

We are going to post a notice on our website in the hope that it might generate awareness about Ryan.

We will also ask our contacts to keep an ear open. I do hope that you will hear something soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

kind regards,
