Additional information that could be useful in making a match I have not hired a professional searcher but was able to make contact with the officer in the spring of ’15 through personal contacts in the region, and have attempted to contact the “finder” but apparently she no longer resides in Dire Dawa, and is believed to be living in Somalia .
