Thanks for contacting me.... I will see what I can figure out on this and post it ASAP.  I will do all I can but make no promises.

One thing I can say about this situation, from my own 'personal' experience with my missing family in Mexico and my husband who's lived in the USA for almost 20 years, but from Mexico, is this:  They hold American's Hostage for only ONE reason:  To extort money from the families.... Once they capture an American, they quickly contact Family and demand a ransom for their safe return.... Once that ransom is paid, more often than not, they actual let the American go....sometimes they don't... Has the family recvd any ransom demands?  If not, then holding him hostage doesn't make sense.   Unless he's being held hostage by some type of law enforcement, etc... Either way, give me a day or two and I will post any information I can pick-up on re: his whereabouts...


OK- First thing I keep feeling is that those who took Harry away from where he was in Michoacan, were not real Police / Military, but disguised as such.... I think they drove him in the direction Harry was intending on heading towards in order to cause no suspicion....allowed him to eat, and he was then handed over to member of a Cartel, who then took control and took him elsewhere.  I think they may have believed he was Police....maybe undercover and took him to one of their camps, or such in order to find out his true identity.  I would begin searching along a road with a name containing Colorado, I believe......there's a dirt road leading from a main road which will take you to this area.  BY NO MEANS ATTEMPT TO TRAVEL THESE ROADS AND FIND JUSTICE YOURSELF AND DO NOT TRUST THE POLICE THERE....  YOU MUST CONVINCE THE US AUTHORITIES TO TAKE CONTROL OF THIS AND THAT IS NOT AN EASY TASK IN ITSELF.... I'M SORRY.

Unfortunately, due to the amount of time which has passed, I do not feel as though they spared his life, for in their minds he was probably a cop, DEA, or such (Especially since the recent arrest of one of the most powerful Cartel leaders in Mexico where the DEA was involved) And Harry served no purpose for them... If he is alive, it's not under good conditions, so time is essential.     

I feel as though he will be found in the summer sometime very near his desired destination of Zihuatanejo...within 15 miles +/- in a remote location, probably near the beach....I'm sorry

I wish I had more to share at this time and if I pick up anything else, I will be sure to let you know.   I will pray for the family and his safety.... 

UPDATE = July 2014


  1. No I don't believe they did. All they know is that he was escorted out of a war torn village by police from a text he sent his girl friend and that was the last they heard. On the fb page set up by the family a couple of pple reported seeing him after nut not since

    1. OK, this is what I thought..... So, it was the Police....They saw him "free" after his escort by Police? Or they saw Police escorting him away? What city was this in?

  2. Devert, 32, who left a job as a trader in finance to travel the world, has not been in touch with his mother or girlfriend in New York since January 25. That day he sent girlfriend Sarah Ashley Schiear an ominous text via the WhatsApp messenger app.

    "Just got an hour and a half long escort out of some area it was too dangerous for me to be," the message said. "Stopping for lunch and ... voila Internet. ... Gonna get back on the road soon. Apparently there's another military escort waiting for me in some other town... I'm running way late because of the crazy military stuff...hopefully get a chance to talk to you tonight when I (hopefully) finally arrive."

    He had checked out of a bed and breakfast in the southwestern Mexican state of Michoacan and planned to travel to a beach in Zihuatanejo, on the Pacific coast, that was in the final scene of the film "The Shawshank Redemption," according to friends and family.

    "My son is a great communicator and he always lets me know -- because I'm anxious -- as close as he can where he's going to be or if he's going to be out of touch," his mother, Ann Devert, told CNN Saturday.

    Ann Devert said she last heard from her son January 23. The phone connection was poor. He told her he'd be out of cell phone and Internet range a few days.

    She said he called every January 29, his late father's birthday, "and when he didn't, I felt a misgiving but I thought maybe it would take a couple of days," she said. "He didn't call."

    Then, Ann Devert heard from a friend who recently returned from Michoacan, where vigilante self-defense groups in numerous communities have engaged in deadly confrontations with the Knights Templar drug cartel.

    After vigilantes threatened to descend on a key cartel area last month, the Mexican government sent in thousands of troops and police to try to keep the peace. The government has even joined forces with the vigilantes as the Knights Templar become further entrenched in the agricultural state.

    "This is an area in Michoacan that has been very dangerous," said Ann Devert, who has been in contact with The Missing Americans Project, a Website dedicated to sharing information and resources about U.S. citizens missing in other countries.

  3. Mrs. Almaguer, I think you are absolutely correct. Here is the latest I could find on this man. So sad, but I don't think the family will ever see him again. How do you do this work and not find yourself depressed everyday? Because the missing in general almost always have a grim ending.
