Western Europe: Update on Disappearance of Solo US Tourist Sarai Sierra, 33

COMMENT: As a follow-up to my posting of yesterday (January 29), concerning the disappearance of Sarai Sierra, 33, a solo American tourist, scant new information has been developed since yesterday, particularly considering that Turkish authorities were only notified of her disappearance on January 25, even though her family has not heard from her in over a week.

At this point, Turkish police, among Europe's finest, are playing "catch up" and pursuing all possible leads.

What remains unexplained is why the young traveler reportedly visited The Netherlands and Germany during her two-week visit to Istanbul.
