September 13, 1985

Alexei Semyonov, the stepson of Soviet dissident Andrei D. Sakharov, ended a 14-day hunger strike near the Soviet Embassy in Washington, telling reporters he will work with the State Department to determine the whereabouts of Sakharov and his mother. At the same news conference, Semyonov's grandmother, Ruth Bonner, appealed to the Soviets to allow her to contact her daughter, Yelena, and son-in-law before she dies. Sakharov has been in exile in the closed city of Gorky, and reports from there say neither he nor Bonner have been seen for weeks.
