Help find Jesse Galganov

Since October 1, 2017 my good friend Todd Galganov has been searching for his son Jesse Galganov a 23 year old young man from Montreal who has been missing in Peru since September 28. He was on a backpacking trip and his last know location was in Huaraz. For more details please click on the link or google Jesse Galganov.

Authorities do not know if Jesse is lost on the mountain or abducted.  His father, Todd Galganov, has been in Peru for many months searching desperately for his son. He has been doing all the ground work including: putting up posters in many different villages; hiring search parties; renting a plane to search the mountain; renting donkeys for the mountain guides (so they don't have to carry their heavy packs on their back). He wants to hire a private investigator and a translator in addition to other expenses. He is not sure what other expenses will come up but will do anything to find his son.  He has been living in modest accommodation to try to limit his expenses.  He is at a point of desperation for funding. Any money raised that is in excess of that needed to find his son will be donated to charity. If anyone has any information that will help to locate Jesse please let us know. In addition, we would appreciate your prayers.
