What is MissingTrekker.com?
MissingTrekker.com is an informational website set up to help family, friends and others who are searching for missing trekkers in Nepal. Currently there is no central or “one place” for people to go and either post information about a missing trekker or find information on what to do if someone goes missing while trekking in Nepal.
Why does MissingTrekker.com exist?
Currently there is no “official” government support site for family, friends or people looking for information on missing trekkers in Nepal. MissingTrekker.com exists because of this. We hope that someone within the Nepali Government will see the need for such an informative site and do it themselves. So far, that has not happened.
MissingTrekker.com does not report missing trekkers in Nepal to anyone other than on its own page of missing trekkers. MissingTrekker.com does give general guidelines on what a person should and who they should contact about a missing trekker.
Who set up and runs MissingTrekker.com?
MissingTrekker.com was set up and is run by David Ways. A travel writer and publisher who specializes in travel to Nepal. David is also the founder of the Digital Archeology Foundation and The Longest Way Home.
As part of The Longest Way Home’s best travel guide to Nepal and David’s close contacts in Nepal he has been frequently contacted by worried family members and friends of missing trekkers over the years. Recently as part of his travel research, David discovered that no organization or government body had a list of missing trekkers in Nepal past or present. So MissingTrekker.com was created.
MissingTrekker.com is supported by David and several close friends in Nepal who continuously keep the site updated with new information on missing trekkers in Nepal.
