Utah man missing since 2004 is married and teaching English in North Korea, article says | The Salt Lake Tribune

These reports confirm theories the Providence family has had for nearly a decade, said Roy Sneddon, Sneddon’s father, on Thursday.”To us, the ideas are not new,” Roy Sneddon said. But his wife, Kathleen Sneddon, added that they are taking these reports with some skepticism.”We have no proof that it’s reliable, to be honest,” Kathleen Sneddon said, adding that they are waiting for confirmation from a Japanese organization.”Until then, we don’t know for sure, but you know, it doesn’t matter,” she said. “We in our hearts think he’s alive. We think he’s probably teaching English. That’s the most likely thing to use him for.”The idea that he is married, Roy Sneddon said, is something that came to their attention years ago by a Japanese woman who had been abducted by North Korea, as well as by people in Japan who had worked with abductees.”It should be emphasized that that is part of the [North] Korean plan,” Kathleen Sneddon said. “If [North Korea] captures you, [they]’re going to give you a wife; you have children, so you settle down and like it [there], and you enjoy it and give [them] your best.”
