American member of the Peace Corps on station in Bolivia. On 1/31/2001, he sent an email to his 11-year-old brother, "Things are ok. No girl, not enough work, and no sports." It was the last that his people heard from him and he was not seen again since a meeting with his supervisor in La Paz on February 22. The FBI became involved and has four agents on the case searching for the 21-year-old youth.
Poirier graduated from the University of Notre Dame last May and had been in Bolivia for about six months in the rural Zongo Valley, two hours from La Paz, where he was building infrastructure for tourism that would attract much need revenue to the region. Prior to his disappearance, he reported that funds for his project were missing, leading his family to believe that he had been kidnapped.
