Choose between a dashing, sophisticated but missing hotel tycoon or a sensual, enigmatic but shiftless beachcomber?

That is the dilemma that Nebraska first grade teacher Amy Andrews finds herself on the lush tropical island of Palmaltas where she has gone to be maid of honor for her best friend’s wedding.

The family of Peter J. Harris has issued a statement to the media pleading for help and information in locating the missing heir to the Harris Hotel chain fortune. Mr. Harris, age thirty-five, represents his family in Palmaltas as the CEO of the Marisol Hotel, which was established here by his late father P. D. Harris, an American hotel entrepreneur. His mother, Alma Gutiérrez Harris, who died five years ago, was a notable figure in Palmaltas religious charities.

Mr. Harris, a native Palmaltan born and raised on the island, is a familiar figure at prominent social events. His sudden disappearance four weeks ago on April 21 left his family and colleagues stunned.

The police have stated that there is no indication that Mr. Harris left the island either by air or by sea. His sister states that none of his personal belongings is missing. His suite in the Harris mansion, which is across the street from the Marisol Hotel, appears just as it did on the day before his disappearance. The police have continuously combed the island, and, as yet, have found no trace of the missing billionaire.

Both family and officials deny that anyone has contacted them regarding a ransom. "He just seems to have disappeared into thin air,” cried his sister, Lisa Harris Rivera.

However, his fiancée, the stunning Marla Hunter, director of a New York modeling agency, stated that she is positive that Peter will return soon. "He is much too responsible to abandon his business, his family, and especially me,” she declared with confidence yesterday at a press conference.
