One week following the Guyana incident, [name deleted] began inquiry at Dover (AFB), Delaware, but was informed he needed positive (fingerprint) information to establish that his relatives were amongst the dead. Only recently did he learn birth records contained the prints of the mother and baby. He was informed by the hospitals they would release the necessary information to an authorized agency under appropriate procedures. [name deleted] voluntarily executed form FD-406 entitled “Authority to Release Information” and the appropriate hospitals responded in writing with the enclosures.

All children and wife have natural teeth and light complected. They have no known broken bones or defects. The features favor that of the Negroid race.
