Lets hope that if it's true we leave them alone and try not to study them as we will ultimately corrupt them.

It seems they're gone missing

Brazil searches for clues of Amazon tribe gone missing

(CNN) -- There is still no trace of an uncontacted Amazon tribe that Brazilian authorities were protecting, but officials cannot say for certain whether the Indians were run off by a group of suspected drug traffickers.

Aid group Survival International first reported this week that suspected traffickers had destroyed a guard post built near the tribe's location to protect them from outsiders. The organization said it was feared that a nearby river has become a transit point for cocaine from Peru.

Brazil's National Indian Foundation, or Funai, did an overflight of the huts where the tribe lives, but there was no one was spotted in the area, agency spokesman Bruno Perez told CNN Thursday.

The fact that none of the Indians could be spotted is worrisome, he said. However, the huts were still standing and the crops there appeared untouched, which indicates that contact was not made, at least not there.

"We have done overflights before, and they were not scared, and we were even able to take photos of them," Perez said.

The photos of the previously uncontacted tribe, released in February, made headlines around the world.

It is possible that the Indians fled or were hiding in fear, he said, but added, "We don't know if there was contact."

Authorities recovered a backpack in the area believed to belong to a drug trafficker that had an arrow inside of it.

A clue, but "that doesn't mean there was contact," Perez said.

Brazilian authorities also said they know that the armed men seen in the area -- about 40 of them -- crossed the border from Peru, but they don't know the nationality of the suspected traffickers or with what criminal organization they might work.

The incursion was first reported by Indians from the Ashaninka people, who at the end of July reported to Funai that a group of armed men from Peru ransacked their village. This village was about five days by boat away from the area where a number of isolated and uncontacted tribes reside, Funai said.

As a result, Brazilian authorities dispatched a group of federal police to the region.

Maj. Luis Baca of the National Police of Peru told CNN that they have an outpost on the Peruvian side not far from where the armed men were spotted, but said that he had not received any recent reports of traffickers in that area.

Perez, of Funai, agreed that drug trafficking in the area was new.

"In this region, drug trafficking is an isolated problem," he said. It was the first time that traffickers were suspected of crossing from Peru in the area near the Indian tribe.

Loggers have been a bigger problem, he said.

What a shame, I hope they made it...
