Seattle resident Jonathan Reinhard is desperate to find his wife, 26-year-old Jenny Chen, who was on a two-month backpacking trip through Mexico.
Chen, a Chinese citizen living in Seattle, left for her trip to Mexico in early March. On Facebook, she documented the places she visited, the people she met, including some of her gracious hosts.
Jenny Chen was last seen on Monday April 11 in Oaxaca, according to Reinhard. He had planned to meet her in Cancun on April 15, but she never showed.
Chen had been backpacking through Mexico since March, sometimes hitchhiking from town to town and finding accommodations through couchsurfing.com, a social network where travelers find host homes.
To complicate matters, her husband says Chen’s citizenship makes it difficult to get help from the U.S. State Department. He’s been talking with US & Chinese consulates as well as with Mexican authorities.
But he gets no sense that any agency is doing anything to find her.
Reinhard is now trying to raise money to hire a private investigator. He plans on returning to Mexico on Friday April 29 to search for his wife.
