Wife Holds On To Hope for Fly Fisher Missing in Mexico

May 5, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

It’s not the first report we’ve heard of fly fishers who have run into trouble in Mexico this year, but it certainly adds a layer of poignancy when a spouse can’t get government assistance in continuing an investigation. Ronald Scheepstra disappeared three weeks ago near the tiny town of Xcalak in southernmost Mexico after separating from friends. “Photographs of the Xcalak police department show messy stacks of files. Cindy fears Ronald’s file will vanish in the stacks, much like he did. ‘Files are just going to end up in a box somewhere and no one will ever have answers and families need answers,’ said Scheepstra.” Jena Johnson of Lufkin, Texas’s KTRE.
