NEXT: August Reiger and Jenny Pope - is there a connection?

Perhaps fearing the August Reiger case is another Jenny Pope scenario, Ecuadoran officials claim there's been "credible sightings" this month of the missing Oklahoma teen.

Reiger, a recent Classen School honors grad, disappeared from the resort town of Baños this past June while hiking with his family on a scenic jungle trail overlooking the touristy hotspot.

Authorities in charge of the Ecuador hunt for him continue to assert that the youth didn't accidentally die or get murdered, but, rather, was "kidnapped" by thus far unknown individuals aiming to extract a ransom in exchange for his safe return.
However, it's been over 70 days since August Reiger mysteriously vanished and still no demands for money -- either by phone or in writing -- have been made.
What's more, the area he disappeared from isn't known for such abductions and Reiger himself doesn't fit the typical profile kidnappers are usually targeting...
To glean what's true from potentially good PR spin, I analyzed what is known about this vexing equatorial riddle and compared it with yet another famous missing person case from that very same locale: That of British backpacker Jenny Pope.
The 50-year-old athletic Pope went missing abroad under eerily similar circumstances in 2006 and is now presumed to have been brutally robbed and murdered by a phony Baños tour guide.  Her remains have not been found yet.
