US man reported missing in Peru

US man reported missing in Peru

U.S. authorities say they are monitoring the case of a Connecticut man who went missing while vacationing in his native Peru.
Jose Eduardo Tamayo of Fairfield was last seen Sept. 19 near Oxapampa, a remote area about 250 miles (400 kilometers) from Lima. The 79-year-old man's daughter-in-law says he was heading to Lima with a Peruvian friend, who's also missing.
Tamayo is an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for about 30 years. He owns a foundry business in Bridgeport.
Connecticut Congressman Jim Himes' office says it's working with the U.S. State Department and that Himes is contacting the Peruvian ambassador Monday about the case.
Tamayo's son also has flown from Connecticut to Peru to help authorities searching for his father.
