America's Most Wanted, On the Road- Belize

AMW on the Road: Belize - John Walsh and the AMW crew were last week shooting in Belize, in Central America, for an episode that will highlight the global reach of the show's manhunt. Robert Snyder, a child predator who went on the run from Fort Collins, Colo., after failing to register as a sex offender, thought he could hide in Belize. But some avid AMW viewers proved him wrong. Snyder had no idea that AMW is broadcast in Belize -- and is a very popular show there. When America's Most Wanted profiled Snyder, a 12-year-old girl recognized him as the chess teacher at her Belize City school. Her mother sent in the tip -- and U.S. authorities teamed up with police in Belize to take Snyder down. America's Most Wanted features Belize in their website and the footage filmed here will be aired on Saturday, February 27, 2010. (Click here to visit the Belize Feature on AMW)
