Missing Asian Tourist in Athens since 27th September

Jump to last reply

We are in search of a Singaporean Chinese man Leongjin who has went to greece for a conference. He has not been contactable since Tuesday night, including no return to his hotel, no phone call and even missing the conference itself.

He was staying at the Golden Age Hotel. For his photos or if you know any information, please contact us at the following link:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Missing-Singaporean-in-Athens-Greece-Kouk-Leong-Jin/227251480665138?sk=info

Details:
26 Sep Monday - Leong Jin arrived in Athens, Greece and did inform wife via email that he has reached. He checks into Golden Age Hotel.

27Sep Tuesday - Leong Jin called his friend, who was supposed to meet him at the conference on Wednesday. I think the friend missed his call. It was checked from telco that he surfed the net on his phone at around 10+pm (Athen's time) on Tuesday night.

28 Sep Wednesday - Wife managed to contact hotel and hotel informed that his last access is on Tuesday night. Leong Jin was not seen by his friend who was waiting to meet him at the conference.

29 Sep Thursday - Leong Jin's brother contacted MFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Singapore) in the evening.

30 Sep Friday - Wife contacted Starhub (Singapore telco) and made police report as suggested by MFA. Friend in Athens managed to enter Leong Jin's hotel room with hotel manager. He was not in the room. His mobile charger is in the room. MFA, local embassy and police in Athens has been activated to track him.

1st Oct - **UPDATE** Our dear friend did not board his stipulated return flight to Singapore

The Singapore Embassy and local police in Greece has been informed of the details but we hope to seek help from fellow travelers to spread the word. Please help to pass this on and keep a look out.
