In this edition of The Missing Americans Project TV, Jeff Dunsavage interviews Amanda LaRoque, who was imprisoned in Honduras for more than a week after being falsely accused of drug smuggling when some flakes of plastic shook loose from an iced tea can security safe she was carrying. Amanda describes the terrifying experience of being jailed in a foreign country.

The Missing Americans Project, a ten-year-old resource and activist organization for families of Americans jailed or missing in other countries, has launched a video interview series produced in the SBN studios.

Dunsavage, a Dunellen, New Jersey, resident, founded MAP when his brother Joe disappeared off the coast of the Roatán resort in Honduras, and his family discovered how little help was provided in such cases by either local law enforcement, the government of the host country, or even from the US Embassy in that location.
