Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Lost or taken ? After four days of futile searching, there is growing concern.
Note that police are still asking anyone who was at the scene to send them any photos or videos of the party that night.

Missing backpacker Amelia Bambridge's father combs through CCTV: 'I think someone's take her'
The 21-year-old was last seen at a beach party in Cambodia on 24 October as she travelled by herself for the first time.

British backpacker Amelia Bambridge's father has told Sky News he believes she was taken after searching through CCTV of the night she went missing in Cambodia.

Sky News' southeast Asia correspondent, Siobhan Robbins, joined more than 100 volunteers and police searching for Amelia.

Through thick jungle they climb, a string of men in uniform picking their way through the trees in the centre of the Cambodia island of Koh Rong.

Every few minutes, one whistles or makes a chirping noise, wordlessly communicating their position to their team.

We follow as they march on through the intense heat, tracing a thin muddy path through the vegetation up a steep hill.

These men have one objective - to find Amelia Bambridge, the British backpacker who has been missing for five days.

The 21-year-old, from Worthing, West Sussex, disappeared after a beach party on the popular holiday island last Wednesday.

Her friends raised the alarm the following evening, and throughout the weekend volunteers joined the authorities in the search.

Amelia's bag was found on rocks where she had been partying so initially the focus was on the beach.

Scuba divers and drones scoured the water and the shoreline but there has been no trace of her so on Monday the search moved inland.

As various groups trampled through the thick vegetation, hoping that Amelia has stumbled off the path and got lost, her family combed through hours of CCTV trying to piece together her last known movements.

As we watch the grainy images on a large TV screen, her father, Phil Bambridge, points her out heading to the party with a small group of friends just before 2am

He said: "We were getting conflicting times of when she got there. I don't think she's in the sea, I think she's inland somewhere.

"I think someone's taken her. I don't think she's had an accident, if she'd had an accident she would have been found."

Amelia Bambridge: 'Sick' hackers target family of Brit missing in Cambodia
The 21-year-old from Worthing, West Sussex, was last seen at a beach party on the sland of Koh Rong

10:22, 28 OCT 2019
'Sick' hackers took over the Facebook account of the sister of a young woman missing in Cambodia in an apparent attempt to scam kindhearted fundraisers.

Amelia Bambridge was last seen at a party on the Cambodian island of Koh Rong at 3am on Thursday.

After the alarm was raised by staff at her hostel the following day, friends and family menbers have been making every effort to help find the 21-year-old.

With Ms Bambridge's sister Georgie, brother Harry and her dad having flown out to the island to look for her, other family members are working hard on her behalf at home.

Sharon Schultes, her other sister, has raised more than £10,000 through a urgent appeal set up on Friday to help find Ms Bambridge and get her home.

Early on Monday morning the worried relative announced that her Facebook had been hacked by people pushing some of the 529 people who have donated for extra cash.

"I have just been informed my Facebook has been hacked," Ms Schultes wrote.

"At a time like this. People are sick!!
"Please do not accept messages from me asking for money as it's not me.

"As if we are not going through a heartbreaking time as it is!! Makes me sick."

Although it is not currently clear whether the scammers had any success, people on the page confirmed they had been asked for Amazon eCards to "support the campaign".

I would avoid speculation right at this moment as the search is ongoing and CEO is on the first page rankings for this story.

We can only hope for a resolution.

And keep posting the updates so concerned families and friends can read easily.

Well done to the searchers and all those who are volunteering their time. These people are doing a tremendous job. Let us hope that tomorrow will be the lucky day.

Some new details in this article in today's Guardian newspaper:
28 October 2019
A Cambodian official working with police on Koh Rong said on Monday a local man was talking to officers on the island, but had not been suspected of or charged with any crime. The man had allegedly been the subject of complaints by women over incidents unrelated to Bambridge. He was not believed to have attended the beach party.

Police searched the man’s clothes and other possessions in a hostel where he worked. Harry Bambridge, accompanied by police, checked the property for items that may have belonged to his sister.
