Dear Michael Morisy,

This is in reference to your fax of February 1, 2017 regarding a FOIA request. A name search did not provide a corresponding case number to the request of December 13, 2016 which you state you originally submitted on December 6, 2016. When a case is opened we send a formal acknowledgement letter with a case number.

It appears we do not have the information you claim your office sent. You may wish to submit a new FOIA request. You may either submit a Freedom of Information request electronically at the Department of State's FOIA website at: www.foia.state.gov<http://www.foia.state.gov>, fax the request to the Requester Communication Branch at: 202 261-8579, or mail the request to: U.S. Department of State, Office of Information Programs and Services, (A/GIS/IPS/RL/RC), 515 22nd Street, N.W., Suite 8100, Washington, D.C. 20522.
