Alert: Trekker Aubrey Sacco missing in Nepal

Posted: May 13, 2010 03:11 pm EDT

Boulderite and Colorado native Aubrey Sacco, 23, is missing in Nepal after failing to contact her family after a solo, week-long trek in the region of Langtang, Nepal. Aubrey began her trek on April 20 and was scheduled to return on or around April 30, but her family has not heard from her since her check-in at Dhunche on April 20.

According to Elephantjournal.com Aubrey is a yoga instructor, artist, and 2009 graduate of the University of Colorado. She has been travelling through Nepal, India and Sri Lanka to help further her yoga skills while volunteering at schools and teaching English, including at Pranava Yogadhama Trust in Mysore, India.

Aubrey began her trek on April 20 after arriving in Shyabrubesi by bus from Kathmandu. She planned on following the Lonely Planet guide and was scheduled to return on or around April 30, but her family has not heard from her since her check-in at Dhunche on April 20.

Although strikes in Nepal may hinder abilities for her to reach people outside of the country, the nine days since her anticipated return in which she has gone without speaking to her family is raising considerable concern, reported Elephantjournal.com.

Connie Sacco, Aubreys mother, said she has received conflicting information from news sources in Nepal and the embassy.

Everyone has been really helpful and weve gotten a lot of response, Connie told Elephantjournal.com. We need to keep networking and letting people know that Aubrey is missing. If anyone feels like theyve seen her, they need to let us know where that might have been.

The family asks that anyone with information or contacts who may be able to help please email them at saccolaw@gmail.com
