Reported missing since 9/25/2009

Radio Netherlands Worldwide has an update on the search for missing US diplomat James Hogan in Curacao, the Netherlands Antilles:

In a special television broadcast police in the Dutch Antilles island Curacao have appealed for information to help solve the case of the missing US vice consul James Hogan.

It is unclear where the 49-year-old vice consul went after he left his home on foot to go for a walk at about 11 p.m. on Thursday, 24 September. His wife reported him missing the next morning. A passer-by found some of his clothes - a pair of jeans, socks and shoes - neatly folded but covered with blood, on Baya Beach, many kilometres from his home. A large kitchen knife also covered in blood was found nearby. Tests revealed that the blood did in fact belong to Mr Hogan. His mobile telephone was found later in the water.

In the TV broadcast police asked the public for any information about events that night. The police appear to have very few leads at the moment.

The police are especially keen to get in touch with the driver of a white two-door BMW, although no reason was given as to why.

The disappearance of James Hogan which was never really picked up by the MSM in the US has even less coverage now, 19 days after he was reported missing in Curacao.

My office has been following this and I have been keeping him and his family in my thoughts. I also noted that he got promoted to 03 in the latest round of promotions.

A terrible thing, too little reported or fretted about. Thanks for the update.
