Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: James Goh

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I’m profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP every day for the month of May. Today’s case is James Junhee Goh, a Korean-American 23-year-old who disappeared from Rancho Palos Verdes, California on February 24, 2008.

It’s no mystery what happened: he was swept out to sea near this lighthouse and presumed drowned after saving a friend from the same fate.

Goh’s body was never found and probably never will be at this date, but he died a hero.

    Hi Meaghan.

    Regarding Rubelsy Escalante Perez’s case – I have come across him on Facebook and he appears to be changing his profile pictures and commenting back and forth with his aunts/uncles throughout the time he’s been missing. Is it safe to post his Facebook link here if you need it? Thanks.

    I wonder if they were hiding or protecting him, while be listed as a Ebdangered Runaway. What a waste of money and effort to find him. Will, they notify the authorities so that he can be removed from all these missing persons databases.

    That way we can look for other real missing people.
