Thanks for getting back to me on this.
I understand your reaction to the information I gave you earlier.
Outside of the one LA Times article, this would be a tough story to
track down, since the main protaganists are Peruvian. It seems likely
that the story was covered much more thoroughly in the Peruvian press

worth your while. Contacting the original reporter also certainly
seems worth a try.

October 8, 1972 issue of the Los Angeles Times, page E10. The article
is titled "Long Hunt for Son Ends in Success, but..."

librarian should be able to obtain a copy for you.
By the way, Boorman's book, "Adventures of a Surburban Boy" devotes a
chapter to the Emerald Forest, and was the source for my information
about the article in the LA Times. You may want to search out a copy
of this book, if you haven't seen it already:
I trust this information fully answers your question.
