Lynda, David et al, I so admire your courage and what you have achieved to date. Also the efforts & achievements of everyone here.

I came across a blog by neoncarrot who I see is a member of indiamike. The part of the blog that I read is dated 2 October 2003.

In it he describes the disappearance of his english friend in Rishikesh in, if I understand correctly, 1996. Although that's a long time ago the similarities seem striking so far as physical evidence and location is concerned.

Perhaps someone should see if neoncarrot is aware of this thread about Jonathan? He seems experienced & insightful, from his blog, and might have thoughts to contribute given that he has thought about the evidence re his friend's disappearance.

If you google
neoncarrot rishikesh disappearance manchester
you will find the blog.

I wish all the best for Jonathan and his loved ones.

Sadly, more likely than a spiritual wandering in my opinion.

new article about Jonathan

Thank you all for you incredible support up until now. As some of you have already seen there is a new article written about Jonathan here: http://www.thejournal.ie/jonathan-sp...97284-Feb2014/

Please share this article as much as possible - we are still hopeful that somebody out there could have some information that can help.

Thank you so much again for everything so far. As most of you already know, Jonathan's mother Lynda is so appreciative of the knowledge, help and support given by the contributors on this thread.

If you haven't seen the Ryan Chamber's documentary yet .... you can now view on SMH.TV. You may need to download Firefox or Google Chrome and then Hola! to view it in your region. Once you have your little Hola icon on your browser, you just click on it and enter SMH.TV and you should see the doc icon in their listings.

Lariam- mefloquine

Ryan Chambers' brother Aaron recently came across information on Lariam and possible side-effects in some people. Is this a cause of "India Syndrome? " . I found Ryan's medication (didn't realise I kept it in his belongings). Lo and behold it is Lariam! This knowledge does not bring him back but may explain his behaviour and paranoia.

Did Jonathon take the same?

http://www.medsafe.govt.nz/profs/dat.../lariamtab.pdf Side effects are on page 8/9

The local doctor (since retired) made no mention of possible side-effects. I do not know if Ryan read the Info sheet with the medication but I doubt it.

Also: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-dark-side-of-lariam/

Travellers should beware. Caveat Emptor.

I took Lariam on my first trip to Vietnam. It made me so paranoid that I would not leave hotel room and step out on the streets. It also brought on a attack of Gout. Once I discontinued Lariam I was back to normal next day. Horrible stuff as far as I am concerned.

I JUST HAPPENED TO READ ABOUT JONATHAN SPOLLEN'S MISSING STORY ON 5TH APRIL, 2014 WHEN I WAS SEARCHING ABOUT TRAIN TICKET BOOKING THROUGH HEAD QUARTER QUOTA.

I WAS AT NEW DELHI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON 6TH APRIL, 2014 AT INTERNATIONAL ARRIVAL GATE NO.5 AT T3 TERMINAL WAITING FOR THE ARRIVAL OF MY RELATIVE FROM USA. AS I WAS WAITING, I SAW A FOREIGNER IN PYJAMAS AND SLEEVELESS VEST (BANIYAN IN HINDI) WITH A PONY TAIL AND BEARD CARRYING A SLING CLOTH BAG. HE WAS THIN AND AND SITTING ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF GATE NO.5 LEANING TO A PILLAR (ADJACENT TO THE KIOSK IN FRONT OF GATE.NO.5 WHERE VISITORS ENTRY TICKETS ARE SOLD) AND STARING AT THE DISPLAY BOARD SHOWING THE FLIGHT ARRIVAL STATUS. THE TIME WAS AROUND 3:00 PM.

SINCE I HAD READ THIS STORY, IT STUCK TO ME THAT, HE MAY BE JONATHAN BY THE SHEER DESCRIPTION THAT I HAD READ ON THE POST, BUT I WAS NOT SURE AND I HAD NOT SEEN HIS PHOTOGRAPH.

OUT OF CURIOUSITY, TODAY I AGAIN VISITED THE THREAD ON JONATHAN AND ALSO HAPPENED TO SEE HIS PHOTOGRAPH (STANDING WITH FEW PERSONS POSTED IN THESE THREADS) AND IT HAD SIMILARITIES WITH THE PERSON I SAW AT THE AIRPORT AS I HAVE DESCRIBED ABOVE. I AM NOW THINKING THAT I SHOULD HAVE CLICKED HIS PHOTOGRAPH.

I AM NOT 100% SURE, BUT I THINK HE MAY BE JONATHAN.
I JUST REGISTERED TODAY (7TH APRIL, 2014) TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL THE POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF JONATHAN.

I HAVE ONE MORE IDEA, IF SOMEONE CAN VIEW THE CCTV FOOTAGE OF THE NEW DELHI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ARRIVAL GATE NO.5 AT T3 TERMINAL BETWEEN 2:45 PM TO 3:30 PM ON 6TH APRIL, 2014.

Regards,
Rajiv kumar

Have been following this thread from the start as one of my friends told me about Jonathan. I was looking at a photoblog earlier and came across a photo which caught my eye...he seems a bit short to be Jonathan but I didn't want to not say anything just in case...sorry if someone has posted this before it is a long thread!

I read this thread only occasionally as I would like very much to see a positive reply, but till now in vain.But still, I do hope that I shall be able to see a post telling that there is news about Jonathan. Deep inside me I do hope that we shall get some solid information.

How is Jon? I thought he's made posts and threads on IM since all of this. Was he found?

Unfortunately that's a missunderstanding. Steven-Ber is posting with Jonathan's picture to bring attention to this thread.
