WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) secured unanimous consent Thursday for passage of a Senate resolution calling on the State Department to continue its investigation into the likelihood that Utahn David Sneddon was abducted by the current totalitarian North Korean regime.

“At the time of his disappearance, David had his whole life ahead of him. He was eager to get back to BYU’s beautiful campus and had recently signed up to take the LSAT. But he never had the chance to do any of these things, and the Sneddon family deserves to know why,” Lee said.

“The first and most important responsibility of the United States government is to ensure the safety and freedom of the American people at home and abroad,” Lee continued. “The State Department’s responsibilities in this matter include investigating all plausible explanations behind David’s disappearance, and leaving no stone unturned in trying to return one of our brothers to his family.”
