Dana Rishpy was a 24-year-old college student when she disappeared on the night of March 30, 2007. She originally to the United States from Israel to search for a good graduate school. She then took a vacation in Cancun, Mexico and was last seen at the Mezzanine Hotel in Tulum, Mexico after attending a beach party, and was seen accompanied with an unidentified male who was drinking. Family and loved ones don’t know who the man is and authorities haven’t been able to identify him.
Who is the unidentified man in these still-shots?
The FBI and Israeli National Police have since become involved in Dana’s disappearance. They are seeking the public’s help in identifying the man in the photos above. This information could help in locating Dana Rishpy and/or provide new information about her disappearance. The individual is wanted for questioning regarding Dana Rishpy’s disappearance. He is described as a White male with a thin/medium build, and appears to be either North American or possibly Australian although some reports state she was last seen with an American man. Authorities say he is NOT a fugitive from the law and police just want to speak to him for possible information that he might not believe is significant but may yield clues that will locate her.
A couple years after Dana disappeared a homeless man came forward claiming to have witnessed the young woman’s murder.
