The pair went missing in Javari valley, in Brazil’s far west, a remote region home to thousands of indigenous people from more than 20 groups. It is a refuge for these indigenous groups who live in isolation from the outside world.

After the confession, the family of Dom Philip mentioned that they were heartbroken by the news. In an interview, Philip’s sister, Sian Philips stated that his family had been aware of their risks and that her brother had underplayed them to an extent
