This was in my Facebook Inbox this morning:

dear friends
dr federico pezzotta and his friend mr marco lorenzoni are in a good health condition but they have no passport and more important also they lost the books with a complete research of madagascar mines did for 15 years by dr pezzotta.
it seem also that the owner of the hotel is involved in the crime of the attack to mr pezzotta and his friend mr lorenzoni.
at present all madagascar borders are filled with police and gendarmerie checking points are prepared all around the country.
all madagascar newspaper are writing about this case.
at the return of dr pezzotta in italy best minerals and gems friends will post an exclusive video and photos with more details about the robber crime.

It sounds like the biggest lose is in material and research - Frederico and Marco are OK!

I hold good thoughts for these men and pray for the return of their research.

Federico has posted an update - to stay appraised of this issue join the "best minerals and gems friends" group of Facebook (Dr. Pezotta is an Admin for the group - for that matter so is our own Gail Spann).
