Actor Pauly Shore is reported to be missing in the Yangadou Rainforest in the Republic Of Congo. The actor was in the remote area filming an action / adventure film titled 'Mother Africa'.
Following a dispute with the director of the film, he stormed away from the secure compound into the rainforest. At the time of print, the actor has been missing for approximately 24 hours. A search and rescue helicopter has been dispatched to the area in addition to ground teams canvasing the jungle.
The article's author tacks on a little info about the area where Shore is allegedly lost, and I have to tell you, if true, things aren't looking good for the Weez.
About the Yangadou Rainforest: The dense and often inaccessible Yangadou Rainforest is located approximately 100km SE of neighboring Cameroon in the often inhospitable Congo. The area is also home to a rebel group known as the Lord"s Resistance Army (LRA) know to carry out deadly attacks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The group continues to abduct children to use as soldiers in its ranks, and United Nations aid workers reported in recent incidents.
Gulp! Send your good thoughts and prayers to Pauly Shore in the comments below! (I know for a fact that the LRA regularly reads Blogtown.)
