A Japanese news article claims David Sneddon, a BYU student who went missing in China since 2004, has been seen in North Korea.

According to the article, Sneddon has a wife, works as an English teacher and has two children. It even stated that he has tutored Kim Jong-un.

Though Chinese officials have stated that he most likely died on a hiking adventure, his parents have always been skeptical of that explanation as there was little evidence to support those claims. This latest news report bolsters the claim that the was abducted by agents of the North Korean government.

He is believed to be living in Pyongyang, North Korea.

Sneddon’s family also learned Wednesday that the U.S. Department of State is formally launching an active search for him in North Korea.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) sponsored a House measure that calls on the government and State Department to look into whether or not David Sneddon is indeed in North Korea and work on getting him back. Stewart’s spokeswoman Allison Barker stated:

Congressman Stewart is still pushing the resolution and is very hopeful it will be voted on before the end of the year in the House…This may put some fire in Congress.
