Linh Chau writes: "My name is Linh, and I am looking to find my sister, Chau Yen Linh. She was born in Vietnam in 1969, and is the daughter of Chau Van Toan (Xia) and Nguyen Thi Lai. Our family escaped from Vietnam, in January, 1985. While off of the coast of Thailand, she was kidnapped by pirates, and has been missing ever since. She was 16 years old at the time she was kidnapped. The rest of our family made it to the Songkhla Refugee Camp in Southern Thailand. Her family loves and misses her. We constantly think of her and worry for her safety. We would be grateful for any information regarding my sister. If anybody has any information on my sister or her whereabouts, please email us."

Gordon Lehnert writes: "I have a request from you and your readers. I am trying to find my ex-wife who was placed in the women’s prison in Bangkok about 40 years ago. Is there any way of getting a list of prisoners or anyway to contact anyone who can help me verify that she is still alive? She's been there around 30 years as she was given a 40-year sentence. I lost track of her immediate family. We parted on good terms and I don't know how she got into the trouble she is in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Her name is Sherrry Lehnert (she could be using the last name of Robinson or Sherman). Sherry was 5'3" tall and weighed about 105, fair skinned, black hair brown eyes and very-very beautiful. She was born around Nov 27, 1949 and has sisters Janet and Joyce. Her parents Woodrow & Maureen passed a long time ago. Anyone with information (with contacts at the prison, etc.) let me know by email or USA 1-863-529-8194." If anyone has any information or any insight into getting more info give Gordon an email.
