Family 'Worried' After Shropshire Man Goes Missing In Peru
18 April 2016, 17:16
The sister of a man from Shropshire missing in Peru have told Heart they're growing very concerned.
29 year old Harry Greaves from Oswestry hasn't been seen since the for more than a week - after going walking in the mountains on his own.
Harry flew to Peru on 20th February. He was travelling there whilst visiting friends in Pisac, near Cusco. He attended a permaculture course before heading into the jungle with a group. He sent two very positive and happy emails home and seemed to be enjoying his time there.
On 7th April, Harry told friends he wished to spend the day by himself on a mountain. They expected to see him on Sunday 10th, but he didn’t appear. He has not been seen since. Harry's 29th birthday was on 9th April.
The charity the Lucie Blackman Trust have been helping Harry's family. They've told Heart: "Harry does often desire to travel alone and he is very practical, self-reliant and used to outward bound activities. He set out with full travelling kit including tent and sleeping bag. However a thorough search of the area he intended to visit has been made without success. "
Harry is 5ft 10in tall, of atheletic build and has blue/grey eyes.
Harry's family have set up a fundraising page to raise money for the search.
