Edward (indeed, any of them) don't know Fred. They approached vampires they've met throughout the years, vampires they trust to hear them out- it's highly unlikely they'd approach someone they've never met and ask of them such a favor.
I dunno about that entirely. Sure they may have known the vampires they seeked out, but not terribly well I'm sure with all of them. They didn't know the half breed or his Aunt that came back with Alice, I think it could've still been a possibility they might have. I am sure his Aunt was a vampire they have never met. If Edward himself searched Fred out, even though they have never met, maybe explaining what happened to Bree would've made him come...but then again, it is a good possibility you are right on this one. lol I have a bad habit of reading to deep into things.

Granted, there aren't that many and the few that do exist are fairly basic - keep the secret, remain inconspicuous - but it's dangerous to go into a world like there's not knowing the full picture. One slip up, one mistake, and it could be all over for Fred. The Volturi don't give second chances and ignorance of the law is not a good excuse in their eyes.
On a side note, did it ever feel like Fred might have had feelings for Bree? I mean, he wanted him (and Diego) to join him if they managed to survive. And he lifted his power around her and protected her (and Diego again) from Raoul's wrath in the hideout. Yes, Diego was there in the equation, too, but Fred didn't know Diego so he might as well have been doing it all for Bree. I dunno, it just seems like it's sort of important: Fred's power allows him to keep everyone away, so we know he is a bit anti-social; but despite this, he lets Bree get close to him, looks out for her, and even seems to enjoy her company. That he was willing to lift his power from around her speaks volumes, I think, as his power is his main source of protection. It reminds me of Bella lifting her shield so that Edward might finally read her mind - there's something intimate about it, about bearing yourself to someone else even when you has the means to keep them away.
You know, that hadn't even crossed my mind in the least. Bree did notice that Fred read the books she left him, which I thought was a very kind gesture to know that he wasn't completely ignoring her. He invited her to join him and wait for her for 24 hours to go with him to wherever in the world instead of just taking off right then and there. Maybe he did? It was just really settle compared to Diego's actions. Fred seems very reserved and little hints like that could've been ways he was showing it.
And I agree, entering the Vampire world without knowing there is the Vampire police keeping rules enforced probably will end Fred's adventures early, but if he was heading to Canada, maybe there is a chance he stumbled on the Denali covern (I think that's the name, gosh I need to reread the books so bad lol) and they could've shown him the ropes and give him a heads up or something. Well, let us hope that Fred is smart enough to not roam around in a crowd with the blazing sun beating down on him.
