A Brother's Plea: My Sister, Nicole Vienneau, Has Gone Missing
Matthew Vienneau is desperately looking for his sister Nicle, who has been missing in Syria since March 31. NowPublic was first alerted to this story by member AYates.
Many bloggers have taken up the challenge to help find Nicole. If you do a simple Google search, "Nicole Vienneau", you'll see how a very broad community has taken up Matthew's challenge.
Have a look at the photo and if you have had any contact with her, please let Canadian and Syrian authorities know. NowPublic will be using our contacts to do what we can. The following is from Matthew's website.
A bit of a step backwards today. There have been varying reports from the Cairo Hotel as to exactly where Nicole was travelling so I called them again for clarification. Apparently not only was she planning on visiting both the beehive houses and Qasr Ibn Wardan as we've known, she was also planning on visiting the "Dead Cities" as well. The most famous Dead Cities are al-Bara and Serjilla. The Hotel say it's possible to do both in one day, and that she didn't take a tour but used public transit, which is definitely her style.
This expands our search radius significantly as the Dead Cities cover quite a large area, hence the difficulty for the local police in finding her.
My apologies to everyone I haven't responded to, as well as leads I haven't yet followed. I'm already exhausted today and it's only 9:45 in the morning. I suspect I need to stop with the late nights and early mornings and get some rest or I'll be no good to anyone.
