Tribe, the friends and family of missing travel blogger Harry Devert are anxiously searching for information on his whereabouts. Harry was in the middle of a solo motorcycle journey from New York City to Ushuaia, Argentina when he disappeared somewhere in Michoacan, Mexico, on his way to Zihuatanejo.
His last communication was with his girlfriend Sarah on January 25th. He contacted her using WhatsApp and told her he was being given an military escort through areas of Michoacan.
‘Just got an hour and a half long escort out of some area it was too dangerous for me to be. 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 hasn’t been heard from since.
His mother hopes that he is just in a remote area where he cannot get cell or internet service but the state of Michoacan is known for being a dangerous zone and speculations of kidnapping and accidents are being heavily suggested. On his blog: A New Yorker Travels, Harry describes his inexperience with a motorbike and why he chose to use one.
“I couldn’t possibly hang up my traveling pack (not that I think I ever really will) without having experienced this last mode of transportation…I’ve never ridden a motorcycle before…but there’s no time like the present..”
Harry is 6 feet tall, 185 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He has a large tattoo of a carp, globe and waves on his right shoulder and Asian symbols on his chest. He is riding a green Kawasaki motorbike with license plate number: NY67SD67.
