Story number 1 for 11 Apr 2000

By April 11, 2000

We begin today in Colombia where we’ll bring you up to date on the latest in the search for the three missing New Tribes Missionaries. NTM’s Guy Sier says a guerrilla defector took authorities to an area where he says the men were executed. “While in that area, they did find some bones, they found a tooth, they found some fragments of clothing, so they sent those items to a medical lab. An initial visual analysis on the larger bone fragments and on the tooth, showed that they belonged to an animal rather than a human.” Ross says the investigation is just beginning, however, the local media ran inaccurate reports on the findings. “We’re not anticipating that these bone fragments are really the remains of our men, but it’s just too early to tell. So, I just caution folks that stories that you may hear that originate out of Colombia may not be the most accurate source.” Continue to pray for the Hostage Crisis Team as they track down leads and try to discern the whereabouts of the three men.
