Found this from the weekend paper.

Canadiense no desapareció, lo desaparecieronSábado, 01 de Noviembre de 2008 01:38Indice del artículoCanadiense no desapareció, lo desaparecieronPage #Todas las páginas

* La mujer que denunció la desaparición de su esposo en playas de Playacar, escapó del país la madrugada de ayer * Se afianzan las sospechas de un homicidio a manos de Robyn Louise Neumann, de 34 años de edad

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, SOLIDARIDAD, 31 de octubre.- La esposa del turista canadiense que presuntamente se extravió en la zona de playas de complejo turístico de Playacar, ayudada por el mejor amigo del desaparecido y dos abogados, un connacional y un mexicano, se fugó del país la madrugada de este viernes, por lo que, la Procuraduría General de Justicia del Estado (PGJE) continuará con las investigaciones para esclarecer lo ocurrido y deslindar responsabilidades, porque con esta acción enrareció más la situación.
La actitud asumida por la esposa del turista que supuestamente desapareció en el mar, siempre fue considerada como sospechosa por la Procuraduría, situación que se confirmó con su fuga; quien logró burlar a las autoridades mexicanas porque en Quintana Roo no existe la figura del arraigo domiciliario, porque desde el principio había la presunción que había algo raro en el presunto extravió del canadiense, y que se confirmó con la fuga de la cónyuge.
La agente investigadora del Ministerio Público para la Atención al Turismo –bilingüe- (MPAT), informó que todo parece indicar que el supuesto extravío de Mark James Comey de 36 años, la noche del sábado de hace una semana, fue un “show” montado, porque la esposa Robyn Louise Neumann de 34 años, quien denunció penalmente los hechos, se fugó la madrugada de este viernes, al abandonar el hotel Royal Hideaway en donde se habían hospedado, ayudada por el mejor amigo de su esposo.
La titular del MPAT, Dulce García Lozano, explicó que alrededor de las 2 de la madrugada, Robyn Louise Neumann, ayudada por el mejor amigo de su esposo, quien llegó de Canadá el miércoles, en un taxi abandonaron el hotel, en cuya zona de playas supuestamente se extravió su cónyuge, sin llevarse su equipaje, para no despertar las sospechas de los encargados del centro de hospedaje.
La autoridad ministerial, entrevistada por este diario, la tarde de este viernes, dijo que el equipaje de la esposa del turista desaparecido, fue recuperado por una abogada que llegó de Canadá, la tarde del miércoles, y quien hizo el registro de salida, para posteriormente retirarse del hotel con destino al Aeropuerto de Cancún para retornar a su país de origen, todo esto con la ayuda del abogado mexicano Angel Prieto quien fue contratado para asistir a la turista canadiense.
La licencia Dulce García Lozano, subrayó que se continuará investigando la supuesta desaparición del turista canadiense para esclarecer qué fue lo que ocurrió realmente y deslindar responsabilidades, “porque no se vale que hayan provocado una intensa movilización de búsqueda en la franja costera y las áreas verdes de Playacar a lo largo de una semana cuando no hubo tal desaparición”.

So according to the article: He did not just disappear, someone made him disappear and his wife is the #1 suspect... they thought there was something very strange about the whole thing ... BUT the wife abandoned the hotel with HIS good friend in the wee hours of the morning (2 a.m.)... and has not been seen since...which only confirms their suspicions. The wife left her suitcases at the hotel so that they could escape without being noticed. From what I gather, it looks like there is a canadian attorney and a mexican attorney that helped in getting her belongings from the hotel and taken back to Canada.
The investigation will continue... they want to find out what happened to the supposed disappearance of the husband and to find who is responsible for having this wide search all along the Playacar coast for a supposed disappearance when it looks like there was none in the first place.
YIKES!!

Here is a rough translation from freetranslation.com.

The wife of the Canadian tourist that presumedly disappeared in the tourist complex of Playacar, was helped by the best friend of the disappeared person and two lawyers, a connacional and a Mexican. They fled from the country the early morning of this Friday, for which, the attorney general's office of Justice of the State (PGJE) will continue with the investigations to clear what happened and to define responsibilities.

The attitude assumed by the wife of the tourist that supposedly disappeared in the sea was always respected a suspect by the Attorney's office. Situation that was confirmed with its leak; who managed to mock to the Mexican authorities because in Quintana I Gnaw not the figure of the home hold exists, because since the beginning there was the presumption that there was something rare in the presumed straying of the Canadian, and that was confirmed with the spouse.

The agent researcher of the Public Department for the Attention to the Tourism –bilingual- (MPAT), reported that all seems to indicate that the supposed deviation of Mark James Comey of 36 years, the night on Saturday of a week ago, was a "show" mounted, because the wife Robyn Louise Neumann of 34 years, who denounced penal the facts, the early morning of this Friday fled, upon abandoning the hotel Royal Hideaway They had lodged, helped by the best friend of their husband.

The holder of the MPAT, Dulce Garcia Spirited, explained that around 2 o'clock of the early morning, Robyn Louise Neumann, helped by the best friend of his husband, who Canada arrived from Wednesday, in a taxi they abandoned the hotel, in whose zone of beaches supposedly their spouse strayed, without being carried his luggage, for awake not you suspect them of the responsible for the center of lodging. The ministerial authority, interviewed by this newspaper, the afternoon of this Friday, he said that the luggage of the wife of the vanished tourist, he was recovered by a lawyer that Canada he arrived from, the afternoon on Wednesday, and who did the registration at the outset, for subsequently be withdrawn of the hotel bound for the Airport of Cancun to return to its country of origin, all this with the aid of the lawyer It was hired to attend the Canadian tourist.

Dulce Garcia Spirited, underlined they will continue investigating the supposed disappearance of the Canadian tourist to clear what was what occurred really and to define responsibilities, "because it does not hold proper that they have caused an intense mobilization of search in the coastal stripe and Playacar for a week when there was no such disappearance.

And her is another one from Quequi. It was originally in the paper last week.

Se lo traga la tierra
Tuesday, October 28, 2008 - Por Rubén Pat Cauich QUEQUI QUINTANA ROO


Dos brigadas de Protección Civil recorren desde Xcaret hasta Tres Ríos en busca del desaparecido.





Por Rubén Pat Cauich QUEQUI QUINTANA ROO

El turista canadiense que estaba hospedado en el hotel Royal Hideway de Playacar continúa extraviado desde la madrugada de este domingo, cuando salió de su habitación tras discutir con su esposa. A pesar del temporal, dos brigadas de Protección Civil realizan recorridos marítimos desde Xcaret hasta Tres Ríos, en donde el oleaje pudiera haberlo arrastrado.
En las próximas 24 horas las autoridades de la Dirección de Protección Civil suspenderían la búsqueda del turista canadiense Mark James Comey, desaparecido desde la media noche del sábado, porque es el tiempo estimado de supervivencia en el mar, según lo dio a conocer Jesús Puc Pat, director de Protección Civil en el municipio.
Entrevistado la mañana de este martes en los bajos del Palacio Municipal, aseveró que a pesar de los efectos del frente frío dos brigadas de personal de la dependencia a su cargo, del grupo de salvamento acuático, con el apoyo de las diversas cooperativas pesqueras locales, prestadores de servicios acuáticos y de la Policía Turística, recorren a bordo de lanchas y motos acuáticas el litoral de la Riviera Maya.
“En este momento continúa la búsqueda, mañana miércoles (hoy) la Marina se va incorporar al operativo de salvamento con dos busques que se han solicitado al subsector naval de la Isla de Cozumel para patrullar toda la rada marítima; sin embargo, serán las últimas 24 horas, porque si no encontramos nada daremos por finalizada la búsqueda”, enfatizó.
Hasta las 19:00 horas de este martes, los esfuerzos por encontrar a Mark James Comey han sido inútiles, incluso personal del consulado canadiense se dio a la tarea de consultar en el Aeropuerto Internacional de la ciudad de Cancún para saber si éste abandono el país vía aérea, sin embargo la respuesta fue negativa.
Las autoridades policíacas locales distribuyeron cientos de copias fotostáticas por toda la ciudad con la foto del desaparecido, además de que se alertó a los taxistas de esta ciudad para reportar de inmediato al 066 si llegaran a visualizarlo.
Hay que mencionar que la pareja sentimental de Mark James Comey cayó en serias contradicciones al momento de proporcionar la información a las autoridades, por lo que será investigada, pues no hay que olvidar que dio aviso casi siete horas después de la desaparición de su compañero de cuarto.

And here is the above article from Freetranslation.com. Sorry its not very good, but at least you can get the idea.

The Canadian tourist that was lodged in the hotel Royal Hideway of Playacar continues lost since the early morning of this Sunday, when the room left after arguing with its wife.

In spite of the temporary one, two brigades of Civil Protection carry out traveled through maritime from Xcaret to Three Rivers, where the swell could have dragged. In the next 24 hours the authorities of the Direction of Civil Protection would suspend the search of the Canadian tourist Mark James Comey, disappeared person since the average night on Saturday, because is the time reckoned of survival in the sea, according to it brought to light Jesus Puc Pat, director of Civil Protection in the municipality.

It interviewed the morning of this Tuesday in the low of the city hall, asserted that in spite of the effects of the cold front two brigades of personnel of the dependence to their charge, of the group of aquatic rescue, with the support of the diverse cooperatives local fishing grounds, lenders of aquatic services and of the Tourist Police, they travel through aboard launches and jet skis the seaboard of the Riviera Mayan. "At this time continues the search, tomorrow Wednesday (today) the Navy goes to incorporate to the operating one of rescue with two seek that they have requested to the naval subsector of the Island of Cozumel to patrol all the maritime road; nevertheless, will be the last 24 hours, because if we do not find anything we will give for finalized the search", emphasized. To the 19:00 hours of this Tuesday, the efforts by finding to Mark James Comey have been useless, even personnel of the Canadian consulate was given to the task of consulting in the International Airport of the city of Cancun to know if this abandonment the country air mail, nevertheless the answer was refusal. The local crime authorities distributed hundreds of photocopies for all the city with the photo of the disappeared person, besides that alerted the cabdrivers of this city to report immediately to the 066 if they came they visualize it.

One must mention that the partner of Mark James Comey fell in serious contradictions to the moment to provide the information to the authorities, for which will be investigated, therefore not one must forget that gave notice almost seven hours after the disappearance of her roommate.

Something sounds a little

screwy here. I realize the translations are not the best, so it's hard to absorb the inflections of the statements being made.

Why would the Mexican government allow a Canadian lawyer take a suspect back to Canada? I hope this is not another Barcelo fiasco.

In both papers they pretty much are saying that something was very odd about the disappearance. Apparently they fought, he disappeared, her story changed, then she left Mexico in the middle of the night without telling the hotel or authorities. So in the end the police do not belive she was being 100% honest with them.

Please, if anyone can make a better translation I am sure many would like to know exactly what the articles say. My apologies, but my Spanish is quite limited.

Thank you.

from what I gather, the Canadian lawyer only picked up the belongings... she didn't take the wife back. The wife abandoned the hotel with her husband's good friend who arrived a few days before. Yes this story is quite fishy. Who knows what really happened.

Very odd.

I have been watching the news here and since the original story there has been nothing that I have seen at all....and the only story online has been the original one, over and over, with very few details.
