Homeless man does not know who he is; stranded in Mexico
UPDATE: Shawn Hale was located.
Update: Is the man in Mexico, Shawn Hale? A family that has been looking for him are pursuing the idea that the man in Mexico is Shawn Hale, who went missing in 1994.
This is the post Looking4Shawn made concerning the missing man in Mexico: “I feel frustrated and angry. I dont understand why the American Embassy would not take fingerprints. They admit he is mentally ill and does not know where he is from. They are the ones who found him after a week of searching. Shawn would be 42 almost 43. My contact at the American Embassy says the person in the pictures is 30. They said he told them his name is Wallace. Micah, Shawn’s brother (the only one Shawn would recognize, has not been able to obtain a passport, he was born at home. I wanted to post the recent pictures, maybe it is not Shawn, maybe there is a 6’2 blue eyed blond hair, 30 year old missing named Wallace. Until I can get Micah to Mexico, I will continue to be haunted.”
We’ll check back for updates.
Original Post: I have had many people sending me the photo of this man in Mexico.
According to the posts about him, he is in Matamoros Mexico asking for food, for the last six months. He can’t remember his name. he asked for a phone to call home, but then he couldn’t remember the phone number or who he was going to call.
This is Spanish to English Translation:
“I’d like to share, this man is lost and homeless in Matamores, Tamaulipas, said to only ask for food and not money, doesn’t remember his name, he has been there in that same spot for about 6 months, he asked to borrow the lady’s phone one who’s asking for help on his behalf and he started crying as he could not remember the phone number of his family member.”

Usually, the homeless in Mexico will move around, but the poster states he has been at the same place for six month. Thankfully, there is a pretty good photo of his face. It even looks as though he may have a black eye.

Buenas noches Sr David, me comunico para que por favor pueda publicar la fotografía de este hombre en su página. Él se encuentra en la ciudad de Matamoros, Tamaulipas , en el Parque Periférico. Me comentó que no tiene documentos es ciudadano americano no recuerda su nombre (solamente anda pidiendo alimentos, no dinero) seguramente su familia debe estar buscándolo. Ojalá alguien lo reconozcs, me pidió mi celular para marcarle a un familiar pero empezó a llorar de impotencia por no recordar el nombre y mucho menos el número con quien desea comunicarse. Publíquelo por favor ya lleva algo de 6 meses en el mismo lugar. Gracias y buenas noches.
