To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

I request all records regarding the search for the "Freedon", a freighter that went missing in in 1989. The freighter departed from Miami on 12/17/1988, and was headed to Haiti.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
