British Man "Missing" on Koh Rong

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Dec 15, 2019 11:50 am

Koh Rong: As it says, in light of recent events (where a British woman went missing and was found drowned off Koh Rong)... there is more concern than usual when guests don't check out or show up when they say they will. This was posted on social media this morning.

Hey guys... Due to recent events.. I just want to put this out there. Has anyone seen this guy? His friends lost him last night after the party yesterday. If anyone has seen him let me no. He was supposed to check out today and he's not back in his room yet. Thanks

British man Adam Davies should get in touch with someone before they send out a search party. Check out time is probably 11am and he's a bit late, but you never know.

It's probably a false alarm, but the Amelia Bambridge case started like this, when she was reported missing by her friends after a party on the island. In that case, police are said to have waited 48 hours before considering her as a missing person.

Therefore, it is understandable that Koh Rong hotel owners are quick to react when guests go missing.

Why foreigners continue to go there is beyond me. Don't give them your tourist money until they clean up their act.

Is its beauty worth losing your life for it?

Cambodia and Thailand the highest death rate per head of young Brits : the SunMar 30. 2018

Britons under 40 are more likely to die in Cambodia and Thailand than any other countries in the world, a Sun online investigation has revealed.
Cambodia and Thailand top the table when comparing the number of deaths to the number of British visitors per year, according to new figures obtained by Sun Online. Cambodia's 11 deaths - taken against the 136,232 Brits who visit the country on average each year - mean a death rate of roughly eight young people per 100,000 Brit visitors. Similarly, Thailand's 25 deaths mean a death rate of around six young people per 100,000 when compared to the 411,000 Brits who usually go each year. In the other hand, Spain drops down the danger table once its much bigger visitor numbers - nearly 13 million - are taken into account. With less than four young people dead per million Brits arriving in the country annually, the country actually seems to be one of the safer places to holiday. Other European countries have similar death rates, with Portugal, Turkey and Germany on roughly four out of a million and even fewer per capita dying in France and Italy. Australia had the second-highest number of deaths, with 27 losing their lives. France and Thailand came in joint third place with 25 Brits under 40 dying in each country, according to figures obtained by a Freedom of Information request from the FCO. Thailand is famous for its beautiful beaches and lively nightlife, attracting plane-loads of sun-seekers every year. But it has also become known for a string of tragedies in recent times, including a spate of mysterious tourist deaths on “death island” Koh Tao. The country is also the deadliest in the world for motorbike accidents – such as the one that killed pregnant Brit mum Sophie Emma Rose last year – with the FCO warning of “poor vehicle and driver safety standards”

Has anyone any information on this guy? I'm worried and think I need to get the British Embassy involved. Too many parties that end up tragic at Police Beach. Me wonders what they ingest.
