Jack West hopes to test his theory that Rockefeller was rescued by natives by mounting an expedition to find the millionaire.
We know very little about Jack West, he’s 43, a “photographer, businessman, adventurer,” and is organizing a rescue attempt for lost (and conventionaly presumed dead) boy millionaire Michael Rockefeller.
West says he has reports of “a naked white man living with an aborigine tribe deep in the jungle.”
West hopes to test his theory that Rockefeller was rescued by natives by mounting an expedition to find the millionire. The adventurer writes that it “is possible the Rockefeller family will fund the project.”
-from Cincinnati Magazine June 1989
It is likely that reports of a “white man” in West Papua were really sightings of Michael Rockefeller’s mixed-race son AK Rockefeller, as these reports coincided with AK’s alleged return to West Papua in the late 80’s.
