SNIPPET: "Classen SAS graduate August Reiger went missing Sunday from a mountain near his Baños resort where he had been staying for the last week."

SNIPPET: "The U.S. Embassy says it is in close contact with the Reiger family while the State Department continues to warn of the dangers in the area."

SNIPPET: "The family tells supporters in Oklahoma City that roughly 150 people searched for August on Tuesday. Those close to August say there is no reason for him to run away."

En Espanol, baños is bathrooms.

My brother-in-law is from Honduras. He has a niece still living there whose son David was kidnapped along with two friends about 3 or 4 years ago and they've never been seen since. The two friends were brothers and came from a wealthy family so they always traveled with a bodyguard.

It was suspected but never proven that the guard may have had something to do with it and that David was just an innocent victim since the targets were likely the two brothers.

Honduras has become very dangerous and while my brother-in-law and sister used to vacation there almost every year, they refuse to go there anymore......

“Baths,” as in the resort of Bath in England (mineral springs), or Hot Springs, White Sulphur Springs, etc., in the U.S.

I've never been to a bano to take a bath.

When you gott'a pee, and you don't know where one is ... you ask , "Where's the bano?"

It’s a euphemism, as when we say, “Rest room,” for a place in which we do not intend to take a nap.

In French they have “pissoir” and in gutter English, “crapper.” I’m sure there are similar terms in Spanish, but nobody uses them in front of middle-aged church ladies.

That may be true.....But people, PLEASE don’t allow your youngsters to vacation or tour in Third World Latin America. All of those countries are corrupt and crime ridden. And in some—Ecuador is one—the government relentlessly preaches hatred of the USA. Costa Rica and Argentina are the only Latin American countries that are even halfway safe. But I wouldn’t risk my kids in those countries either. And yes, I speak fluent Spanish and Portuguese and have lived (10 years) and travelled extensively in Latin America.

So sorry to hear this, what an awful tragedy for your brother-in-law’s family.

The locals are pretty sure on the fact that they don’t have kidnappers in the local area.

I’d be looking for a mountain lion (puma) that chased him off the trail, and ended up taking him down somewhere. When I was in Panama....between the snakes and the pumas....it just was advisable not to wander off away from civilization.
