Index card states: "Balbuena, Luis; Res: Guantanamo." The report probably came from "201-208451" on 8/2/61. "Contact of AMTORRID-4. No further info." Marginalia then states: "Content: Through Mr. Luis Balbuena, made direct contact through Commander Finney (note: Clear reference to Harold Feeney) and Lt. Murlok, and was a member of Operation BETTY. (NOTE: Almost certainly a reference to Operation PATTY, which was planned to take place on 7/26/61). All records of his activities in Guantanamo Base."

Contact Report, 1/29/64, apparently written by AMYUM-19: "The story of the affair is as follows: AMTORRID-4 and Chinea were having trouble with the rest of their infiltration team and expressed a desire to have another assignment. AMTABBY-42 was attempting to settle the problem but was absent on 12 January. The two took advantage of AMTABBY-42's absence to go AWOL from the Guillot camp. (Editor's note: Probably named after Guillot/AMBRONC-5) (After they capture), the two were subsequently transferred to El Tortuguero and then to an isolated house in the jungle to await disposition of their case."
