Details of Disappearance

February 21st, 2021 - Imbabura Volcano, Ecuador

Travis Sackett is an activist who has served several terms with both AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps.

Sackett was in-between assignments volunteering on a farm in Pimampiro, a village the northern part of Ecuador. However, he left for a hike February 21 and never returned.

Sackett's family is working with officials in the states, but friends at home say they feel powerless to help.

That's why a group of Sackett's former Peace Corps colleagues are working to raise awareness and keep pressure on the Ecuadorian government.

In the 4 weeks since he's disappeared, the local authorities went searching for Sackett twice, the first time after he'd already been missing for five days.

"There was a bit of a frustrating pause between the search on the 26th and one which was Thursday, March 4, since then though, 6 more searches have been done..said Jennifer Ko, longtime friend of the Sackett family. "Through Facebook, we actually found someone who saw him up on the volcano. So, we know that he got close to the peak, but we haven't heard from him since." search dogs, helicopters have been used in search.
