Helem

Helem was a member of the sixteen-man search party sent out by King Mosiah around 121 BC to locate the expeditionary force that had left around 200 BC to return to the land of their origins in the south. The leader of the search party, a descendant of Zarahemla named Ammon, took Helem, Amaleki, and Hem with him to meet with Limhi, then king over the Nephite colony. They were imprisoned for a time until Limhi was able to determine that they were from Zarahemla and were prepared to help him and his people escape from Lamanite bondage.
