It should not have been a problem getting to a phone or cyber-cafe in BZ City. How long were they going to stay in BZ....do you know their planned route? Finding accomodations in BZ would not be a problem either. Guatemala i know nothing about, but wouldn't go there myself. (opinion) If you don't hear from them soon, you might try emailing pics to American Embassies and gov'nt officials with your story. I know that i make those committments to my mom and dad when we go to AC, but sometimes get so rapped up in the adventure...i forget, or just let time get away from me. Have they done this before..backpacking to 3rd world countries??? You will be in our prayer's and keep us posted....Angel Blessings!!! C&R Wish i could be more help!!! You could also try emailing the "Love FM" radio station...in BZ City....they might put it out as an announcement on the radio there. Just go to the "News" section on this board!!
