Missing person: Canberra man in New Orleans

By MarkyB - 13 May 2011 15

Well-known Canberra DJ and genuine nice guy, Alex “Escha” Beddows 32, is missing in New Orleans. He’s even a member on Riot-Act – as “escha”. Here’s a New Orleans report.

Alex was holidaying in the USA with his Dad. He apparently went to the New Orleans Jazz Fest last Saturday (May 7) , where he met some people who invited him to a party later that night in Algiers, NO.  Aside from apparent sightings in bars in the area, he’s not been seen since.

There’s even some CCTV shots of the people he caught the ferry to Algiers with. Surely someone knows soneone who knows them?

Alex’s father is still in New Orleans searching for him. Help spread the word, please.

What’s Your opinion?

I remember Alex from school – nice kid. Must be really tough for his family right now, my thoughts are with you. Good luck.

Doesn’t sound good. New Orleans is a dangerous town, especially at Mardi Gras time (which I think has been held already, early spring from memory).

Thanks for the optimism and assurance there EJ. Mardi Gras does equal danger, in fact street parades in general are like war zones. Didn’t look good for many in history who told their tale. Be positive.

Finger crossed for a return home.

With several relative and friend overseas traveling and living at any one time this kinda story scares the crap outta me.

Hope he turns up safe and well.

This being the ACT, where only 2 stages of separation exist, may I ask if Dad’s name is Chris?

I hope everything is okay – the term ‘assisting with investigations’ can have a lot of connotations as you’d know.

It’s a real shocker actually – mean, mean place after dark! You really have to know where you are, and who your with, in that town. Hope they have some luck.
