Today marks exactly two years since Carla was last seen in Pisac, Peru. That's 730 days without knowing the whereabouts of my sister. Without knowing where she may be or what may have happened to her. It is unimaginably painful. 

My family and I continue to work tirelessly on her case every single day. Although we have encountered various set backs, my family has no intentions of quitting. We are here for Carla and we will find her. We are more determined than ever.

We ask that if you are able, please help us continue this fight to find Carla. We have generated over $80,000 in generous donations thus far and we are hoping to reach our goal of $100,000. 

Your donations will be put to work immediately to pay for resources that the Peruvian and US governments do not provide. This is integral to the success of Carla's case. In tandem, we are working to bring awareness to the dangers of traveling alone in this region of Peru and advocating for other families who have experienced similar circumstances. If you or someone you know have lost a loved one in a foreign country, please reach out to me. I have a mountain of useful information and contacts that I would be more than happy to share. 

We thank you as always for your love and support and hope that you, your family and friends are staying healthy during this uncertain time.

Thank you all for your overwhelming show of love and support in our ongoing search for Carla. Over the course of the last year so many of you have shared with our family how Carla impacted your life in a positive way. Strangers that have been touched by Carla's story have sent us so many kind words and accounts of their own hardships endured. Every bit of it gives us strength to continue fighting for answers. We miss Carla everyday and will not give up until we bring her home.

Since the disappearance of my sister, my father has left his old life behind and is currently living in Peru . He works tirelessly on her case with authorities everyday. Your generous donations have enabled my father to remain in Cusco full time and pay for additional resources not provided by the government .

We understand we still may have a long journey ahead of us. We are raising our goal to $100,000.

We can't thank you enough for your continued love and support.

Hemos alcanzado nuestro objetivo inicial de $50,000 gracias a la increíble cantidad de apoyo que hemos recibido de la amada comunidad de Carla en Detroit, su familia, sus amigos de todo el mundo y extraños que han sido tan generosos. Esta investigación continúa con toda su fuerza gracias a todos ustedes. Mi familia te lo agradece. Es verdaderamente abrumador.

Hasta ahora, sus donaciones se han puesto en acción al contratar personal adicional de búsqueda, rescate e investigación que se encuentran en el terreno en Perú en este mismo momento. Sus donaciones también han ayudado a mantener a nuestro padre en la región, presionando a los oficiales y autoridades para que lleven a cabo esta investigación.

Debido a que esta investigación es tan compleja, hemos comenzado a planificar a largo plazo. Estamos elevando nuestra meta a $75,000. Por favor, pase esto a cualquiera que esté dispuesto a ayudar. Estas generosas donaciones mantendrán viva esta investigación. Vamos a seguir adelante. Vamos a encontrar a Carla. No tenemos otra opción. Gracias.

UPDATE 06/09/19:

We have reached our initial goal of $50,000 thanks to the incredible amount of support we have received from Carla's beloved community in Detroit, her family, her friends across the world and to strangers who have been so generous. This investigation continues at full force because of all of you. My family thanks you. It is truly overwhelming.

So far, your donations have been put into action by hiring additional search, rescue and investigative personnel who are on the ground in Peru this very moment. Your donations have also helped keep our father in the region, putting pressure on officials and authorities to see this investigation through. 

Because this investigation is so complex, we have begun planning for the long term. We are raising our goal to $75,000. Please pass this along to anyone that may be willing to help. These generous donations will keep this investigation alive. We are going to keep going. We are going to find Carla. We have no other option. Thank you.

Carla Valpeoz has gone missing while on vacation in Peru. Please help us find her.

She was last seen on Dec 12th in the town of Pisac, north of Cusco. 

We are desperately trying to find Carla and need funding for additional Search and Rescue efforts. The resources of local authorities are very limited. 

We are asking for donations large and small to coordinate efforts with professionals to aide in the Search and Rescue of Carla. Thank you to all her wonderful friends and family all over the world, the media, politicians, government officials, the Peruvian army, The US Embassy, The FBI The office of the President and Vice President of Peru, The United States of America and everyone else that has helped our family. 

We know she is still out there. Please help us bring her home.
