A message from Tineke's friend: My friend Tineke Verkade got to the start of the Camino on Sunday 20th April. She hasn’t been heard of since and her family is very concerned. The authorities have been contacted but say they can’t do anything. She had been in constant contact with her family up until this point. Her last contact voiced some concerns about being alone. Her phone, bank card and email has not been used since the day before. Anyone out there on the Camino can you please keep an eye and ear out for any information about her. She is wearing a bright orange Macpac back pack. 55824

It is policy to post the following in cases of missing pilgrims.

Over the past few years, we have seen posts by people looking for loved ones and worried because they have not heard from them recently. Forum members have gotten involved to try to help locate the “missing” pilgrim. This is a sensitive issue, because we have to respect the possibility that a pilgrim may intentionally want to cut off contact with “the world,” while in other cases the pilgrim may be unable to contact the loved ones. Because we cannot verify the intentions of the person looking for a “missing pilgrim,” and because we have no way of knowing whether the “missing pilgrim” wishes to be found, we have adopted these general guidelines:

The forum will allow the posting of “missing person” threads.

Responses to the thread should fall into one of two catergories:

1. Suggestions about steps the OP can take to try to find the missing person. Speculative posts, including those pondering the motivation of the missing person, will be deleted.

2. Factual information about the whereabouts of the missing person, for instance, “I was with XXX two nights ago in xxxx albergue”. If you can speak to the missing person directly, ask him or her to contact the OP rather than disclosing the person's location on the forum. Communications with the OP via the private message function would help preserve the privacy of the parties.

If you have any concerns please contact a moderator.

I am so glad she was located and is fine!

I am also glad people can post for missing people on this forum, It is a good starting point for those who are worried, and full of good advice also.

I agree with the forum rules and what Wayfarer stated above. I have met one or two who decided to 'drop out' while walking. We must respect those that decide to do so.

I am also glad that most who 'disappear' for a while on most occasions is due to technical reasons/losing phone/stuck in a place with no Wifi etc rather than coming to any harm.
