We are in search of a Singaporean Chinese man named Kouk Leong Jin 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.


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.

27 Sep 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 in the evening.

30 Sep Friday - Wife contacted Starhub 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.
