Dear Sir or Madam, as you might have been informad already, 3 Czech students disappeared on their travel in Albania in August or September this year. A rescue action has been running for more than a month already and some information was found, but the students haven't been found yet. That's why we'd like to ask you for help again. On Thursday 8th November, mother of the missed students will arrive personally to Tirana to ask the Albanian people for help herself. We would like to ask you to pass this information to your relatives, friends, colegues or media as it is extremely important that as many Albanian citizens are informed about this matter as possible. OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Three Czech students - Michal, Honza and Lenka - have disappeared in Albania this summer. Even though investigation has been going on for more than a month, they have not been discovered yet. Friends of the lost Czech students are preparing departure of Mrs Pavelkova (mother of the lost students) to Tirane. Mrs. Pavelkova intends to ask the Albanians personally for help to find her children. FACTS: A Czech rescue expedition operated in the area in October and found out several interesting information about movement of our lost friends. They were seen in the mountains in northern Albania during August, the last notice comes from 15th August when they were seen in the village of LOTAJ. Later, some unconfirmed information appeared about them. However, a police officer from the police department in Shkoder told us that a police patrol checked checked our missing friends on 11th of September in a small village close to Shkoder. Furthermore numerous unconfirmed observations of missing students has been reported from various places in Albania (even from DURES and TIRANE). Also later we have received some reports about the missing students having been observed at various places in Albania, but we cannot take any of them for sure. An intensive investigation is being run by Albanian police. Nonetheless, your support in the search would be very helpful. PLEASE HELP: Please forward this message to anyone you know from Albania and Kosova, Monte Negro and Macedonia. Our friends have been travelling in mountains north of Albania but there is possibility that they could have moved to above countries. Please please please post posters from links below on public places as bus-train stops, hostels, restaurants, hospitals etc. around Albania.

The families of the missed students are desperate and there is a strong belief that they are still alive. That's why infoming the Albanian people and asking them for co-operation in the search is extremely important. Many thanks for your co-operation, and I'll welcome if you can send me a feedback of what can you do for us. For parents and families of the missed students. Jana Svobodova.
