A recent graduate of the Xi Chapter at Wesleyan University, Jesse Galganov '16,is currently missing and last seen in Huaraz, Peru on September 29th.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family in their search for Jesse. From the GoFundMe Page:

Jesse Galganov, 22, left Montreal last month for what was supposed to be an eight-month backpacking trip through South America and Southeast Asia, but he only got as far as Peru.

Jesse began his trip to Peru by spending a few days in Lima. On September 28th, he took a bus to Huaraz, a small city in northern Peru, and arrived there at 6:30 am. That day, he informed his mother that he was planning to trek the Santa Cruz trail, a 50-kilometre hike through the Cordillera Blanca mountains, and would be out of communication for 3-4 days. 

Since September 28th, Jesse has not been heard from by his family or friends. 

We are raising $100,000 to pay for resources, to set up highly targeted PR campaigns (Facebook ads, Instagram ads,  etc) and to assist with the costs associated with specialized search teams. We are looking to raise the funds ASAP.

With unity, we will be able to bring Jesse home.  Any excess money will be donated in Jesse's name - as per the instructions of his mother, Alisa.

In addition the family has setup a Facebook page "Help us find Jesse" with up to date information.

If you have any connections in Peru that may be of assistance please reach out to helpusfindjesse@gmail.com
