The search for Harry in Peru.
£33,361 of £30,000 goal
On 7th April, Harry told friends he wished to spend the day by himself on a mountain. They expected to see him on Sunday 10th, but he didn’t appear. He has not been seen since. Harry's 29th birthday was on 9th April.
Harry is one of the most loveliest men you could ever wish to meet and be friends with. He is an extremely genuine and caring person who acts from his heart and with pure integrity.
He cares for people and he cares for our earth.
He is involved in many community projects such as Incredible Edible Wrexham, The Community Land Project and is a much-appreciated group member of Wrexham kundalini yoga and the Winds of the South Shamanic training.
Harry is a very-skilled furniture maker and promotes to transform the world by embracing permaculture and writing life-inspiring poems.
He has been sharing his gifts and skills generously and he is dearly loved and respected in his vast community and network of friends and family. The world around him is a better place for his presence.
Sadly the situation in Peru is that only small handful of dedicated rescuers led by Ario and Pierio who
have been conducting the searches so far. Mostly they have consisted of Harrys close friends, permaculture farm volunteers and some members of the local indigenous communities. We are trying to cover an area of around 20 square miles of high altitude mountainous lake terrain and run a research and communication team.
We have received NO real support from any government organisations the British embassy, foreign office, Peruvian municipality and police forces. They are aware of the urgency of our situation but no one has offered ground or air support or assisted with resources to help us do more. So we are reaching out to
you, our friends of the earth who care to help us find our dear friend Harry and bring him back safe.
The Helicopter has already cost us $14,000 for 4 hours. And we need more! We've already used 2hrs in sweeping and surveying so currently can only afford 2 more. In order to widen our reach we are recruiting locals (who move fast and are used to the altitude) offering s/200 per day and a s/1000 reward to whoever finds him. We have managed to borrow low quality radios but we need more to do a better job. We need to grow our team and FAST time is of the essence and Harry is counting on us. We can't wait around for the government to continue pushing papers. It's up to us to be the change now.
~ Sharing is Caring ~
The authorities in UK and Peru have known since Thursday 14/04 and nothing so far on the ground or the air has been done to help. Please help us share this to the masses and put pressure on the government to step up and do what they are paid to do and be public servants. The sacred valley of Peru relies heavily on tourism if the government here feels this will ripple into their pockets they will act and the best chance we have to find Harry sooner.

for regular updates on our rescue updates and developments.
Any extra funds accumulated after we have rescued Harry will be discussed, decided, and donated to projects and charities that are making a real difference. And will be transparently and publicly announced by the team.
Harry flew to Peru on 20th February. He was travelling there whilst visiting friends in Pisac, near Coscou. He attended a permaculture course before heading into the jungle with a group. He sent two very positive and happy emails home and seemed to be enjoying his time there.
In Love and light for Harry and his family we all pray for his safe return.
Hi, im from Perú, and i just read on the news that Harry's body was found today in a deep precipice, 4 hours away from Pisac. On behalf of my country, I apologize for not helping as should have done in the search and rescue. The territory on Perú is ver difficult. Thats why authorities always recommend people never go alone. I regret very much the loss of Henry. I see people continue to donate and i ask them to continue doing so to raise more money and donate to charities.
IT WILL BE HELPFUL FOR FUTURE TOURIST VISITING PERU TO FIND OUT WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED TO HARRY AND HOW HE DIED? I HOPE TO HEAR A FULL REPORT ON THE CASE.
Hi there. I hope that these comments come off sounding helpful as this is the idea. You might want to consider asking trekking companies to lend a hand or to lend walkie talkies for the search. They all of them and may be able to lend you radios for a couple days at a time. Also, S/200 is tons of money. If you were to contact, or I could do it for you, you could ask local communities to help with the search offering much less and thus hiring more people to help. Arrieros or muleteers for treks generally get paid about S/40 per day, to give you an idea.
Good luck, I hope it all ends positively. Thoughts go out to his family and friends.
I really hope he is found soon.
Praying for your safe return Harry . . . Thinking of you Simon, Sarah Ellen and all the family with lots of love, Simon & Jeanette X x x
