A modern-day explorer and writer has disappeared into the jungles of Papua, New Guinea looking for a tribe that has no contact with the outside world. He was dropped into the remote region three weeks ago and has recently missed his rendezvous to return home.

It's not the first time that adventurer Benedict Allen has gone missing while out in the wilderness. The father-of-three has been criticized for his habit of not bringing a phone or GPS tracking device to alert his family and colleagues to his location.

He has accomplished incredible things throughout his lifetime, including being the first person to navigate the widest part of the Amazon Basin, and the only known person to have crossed the Gobi Desert with camels alone.

But sometimes, his adventures come at a terrible cost.
