Many are probably aware of the missing American, Yvonne Baldelli who disappeared in Bocas del Toro. Her family has been financially exhausted in an effort to discover what happened to her.
This is from the Panama-guide.com
“family members have created a fund and are asking for donations to help them pay for travel expenses and legal fees. Most of them live in the United States and they have had to come down to Panama to search for Yvonne, and to speak with the DIJ detectives, the local FBI agents at the US Embassy in Panama City, and the prosecutors of the Public Ministry in David. In addition they will have to hire a local Panamanian attorney to help oversee and manage the case for them here in Panama. All of these things cost money, and this is not a rich family. Yvonne’s disappearance has already stretched them to the breaking point. Her father, James Faust and his wife Lilian are members of our community of English speaking expatriates here in Panama. Many people have said “…if there’s anything I can do to help…” – well, there is. Please visit this website - www.findyvonnebaldelli.com/Support.html - and make a donation. Remember when you guys stepped up to help Greg Coy after his family was wiped out by a mudslide in Portobelo? You know I hardly ever ask you to do anything. Well, I’m asking again. These people need some help. Thanks.”
