Local Cancun Papers are reporting that Mexican Authorities with cooperation from the Belize government now believe that missing Israeli tourist Dana Rishpy is alive and in Honduras with an American sought for questioning in her disappearance. The papers state that Mexican officials were allowed to cross into Belize and have located people and a hotel operator whom are claiming and have identified that Rishpy recently stayed there before heading towards Honduras.
The Israeli woman has been the subject of an international investigation after disappearing two months ago from the Tulum region of the Mexican Caribbean.

Just read that this morning. Must be a relief for the local officials who waited so long to start an investigation. Now looks like the pressure is off them.

Do they think this is a kidnapping or possibly a "whirlwind" affair?

As for me, I would doubt its a kidnapping. But just my opinion. But , as I said, must be a tremendous relief to Mexican authorities, who never really did much investigation until Israel got involved and put the case in the international press.

I hope that it`s true and that she is in no danger. I have thought about her a lot lately. Hopefully she will eventually contact her family and let them know she is OK

I hope it's true and all those that jump the gun and started badmouthing Mexico would learn their lesson,if it is true and she eloped,i hope the authorities would do something and teach her a lesson.

I will believe this story when her family acknowledges it has basis in fact.
Having recently travelled the area I believe a lot of people look similar and there are a lot of people her age travelling the area.
I find it odd that some one with out travel documents is so easily crossing international borders.
Sounds like Bello Melchor Rodríguez y Carrillo is attempting to get the heat off the Cancun area yet again.

if there was truth to the central america connection we would probably have heard more by now, atleast from the family. I understand they are still searching for Dana

Dana's mother says it is not true. She has not been found and Belchor is closing the investigation based on false reports of Dana being found in Belice/Honduras.
I think this official is either terrible corrupt or incompetent and I think mexico needs to address the continual mess he makes of international affairs.

It is July now and Dana is still missing

I believe Mexico is under pressure to close this case. Where is lead suspect Matthew Washen? What about his sexual assault record? Why won't U.S. Mass Media pick up this story? Where is "Maty"?

one of the comments said that she/he will not believe until the family says so.
I am Dana's mother.The Belize story invented by Bello Melchor to close the case. We were in Mexico for 2 months and this is all the authorities could do-send Dana to Belize! An Israeli official was sent to Belize to the woman that confirmed Dana was staying with her, with another girls photo, and that woman "identified" her as Dana...
We continue to search Dana and will not stop until we know what happened to her! Please help us!
