My friend Graham went missing in Quito, Ecuador on March 10th, heading to Peru on motorcycle. He has been traveling on foot and motorcycle from Mexico (he travels all over the world with one small bag). He's 23. No one has heard from him (he usually emails once a week) in 5 weeks. He's Canadian/American. Embassies, police have been notified. If you know anyone traveling in or living in Quito, Ecuador could you please repost this photo on your facebook. Graham is independent, courageous and super cool. Thank you.

In response to: Msg #135830 Thank you. His parents and my dad are in Ecuador right now looking for him. The US and Canadian embassies have been very helpful and are retracing his route from Quito to Macas. He was apparently last seen close to Macas in the jungle. There have been various sightings, but nothing yet. Reply to this

Unfortunately it looks like Graham has passed on. My thoughts are with Graham's family and friends.

Here's a FB Group for Graham: "Find Graham Murray" - https://www.facebook.com/groups/207649939260114/ Reply to this

Tears ran down my cheek as I read the outcome. Peace to Graham's family. Maybe knowing he loved exploring and he was doing what he loved when his life was taken will give them some peace. I doubt it..... the world can be a harsh place.
