We have a nephew and wife who live in Singapore.. They trek all over South East Asia , places such a Borneo, Sumatra, Thailand, VietNam.. He was off to Australia, Thailand, and VietNam for some Christmas travel.. Last we heard from him was November just before he and his wife left..
His land line in Singapore has stopped working.
............. His cell phone does not ring, but messages go directly to some message service. he must have 15 of our messages alone....... He does not respond to emails at his various email sites..
. ....How are cell phone messages received.. ?. The fact the messages are received, does that mean his cell phone is activated..?.... Or, is he paying his cell phone bill.. ?
....He was supposed to come visit us in early January. . He once said he does not like us to do as State Department searches because of something about industrial spying.? But, we are about to.. During the Indian Ocean tsunami he was in Sri Lanka , so we once did just that. But, luckily he was in the Ceylan Highlands..
He has a small number of family left in Oregon.. They have not heard from them over Christmas. Up until recently , they thought his lack of communication normal.. They are getting a little worried also..
Is the state department the only way to track down foreign travelers.. ? We read the governmetn of VietNam sometimes arrests people on trumpt up charges just to sucker legal fees out of Americans on false charges.. Or are their head hunters still in Borneo.. ?.
any advice.. My wife is getting quite worried and about to contact the State Department whether he likes it or not..
The only life contact we have for him is his cell phone number..
