Urgent! A Commonwealth University Richmond Student is Missing
This is an urgent appeal to all my friends who live in or have contacts in the USA.
I am asking that if you have received this message that you kindly send it on to as many of your friends, relations, church groups, etc as possible, who live in America - and that they, in turn do likewise.
Please - we need your help!
My dear friends Debbie and Alan Dorey are in Virginia looking for their missing son Jonathan. Jonathan - known as "Jonny" is a university exchange student at Virginia Commonwealth University Richmond, and was last seen on Tuesday, March 2nd. He was recorded on camera leaving the campus with his white push bike. Neither Jonny nor his bike has been seen since.
There is now a large reward being offered to anyone with information to Jonny`s whereabouts.
Jonny, who is 22 years old, is about 5 foot 11 inches and speaks with a very strong English accent. We know he is still in America as his passport was found in his room at the university.
So please, even if you feel you cannot help us yourselves - would you send this on to as many people as you can in the USA, as Jonny could now be in any state.
I deeply thank you in anticipation that you will spread this appeal.
A Message to Jonny

So that I know that it is you and not some prankster, please include in your message the name of the site or the whereabouts you did some work-experience with my son.
You are greatly loved and missed and we all pray for your safe return.
