Jonathan Spollen has been missing from Rishikesh since February 2012. His mother has just posted that there has been a possible sighting of him on a bus between Thiruvanamalai and Chennai, and that he could have been heading towards Mamallapuram.

Please see her post here:

After 10 months this is obviously very exciting news!
We are very hopeful that this was in fact Jonathan and we now need to refocus our search to this area but unfortunately we have absolutely no knowledge or experience of searching in Southern India, it is completely new to us.

Yet again we would so appreciate your help and expertise to start our search in this region, where we have no contacts or any starting point.

Here is the description we have received from the sighting:
Very thin, with long hair, in slightly shabby saffron clothing and carrying a small brown bag on his shoulder.

What we need to find:

1. Where he could have stayed / be staying?
- any lists of hostels, ashrams, and other places that a person with no papers could stay.

2. Where he could be going?
- any pilgrim routes that include this area or any spiritual festivals that he could be attending.

3. Does the description of his appearance or clothing have any special significance?
- could this link him to any specific group and where would like minded people be found?

4. We are currently updating the poster in both Hindi and English, can anyone advise us if Tamil would also be the most suitable language to focus on for this area? What would the most widely understood language be?

If you can offer her any help or advice on these questions please post in that thread.

We now have a Tamil poster. Please share this Tamil poster and the English one on facebook etc and please print out copies and display them in railway stations, bus stands, taxi stands, restaurants, hotels, cyber cafes, ashrams, yoga centres etc.

Please look out for him, and if you have any advice or thoughts which could help the family in their search, post them in the main thread (link in the post above).
