Worcester teen raises alarm over missing British woman in Cambodia
By Andy Mitchell
A BACKPACKER from Worcester has raised the alarm over a woman missing in Cambodia since Wednesday night.

Ryan Harris, 18, is part of a group travelling the Asian country with Amelia Bambridge, who is from Worthing, Sussex, and has gone missing in Koh Rong.

Ryan moved on to another island with plans to link back up with Miss Bambridge but her passport is still at the hostel she stayed at, and he says he's been told that her phone, purse and money were found unattended on a nearby beach.

Cambodian police have been informed but Ryan said they had indicated nothing would be done until Miss Bambridge had been missing for 72 hours.

“She was one of the first people I met over here about a week ago,” said Ryan.

“I met her in Phnom Penh and we got the boat to Koh Rong, we all spent a few days together and met up with a few other people in a big group.

“We went on to a neighbouring island but she stayed there with another girl I know who had travelled with us on the boat over.

“I then had to travel back to Koh Rong after leaving my passport at the hostel and when I got there two people told me she had gone missing.

“I assumed she would turn up but I have since travelled another 12 hours on a bus to Siem Reap and she still has not been found. She is supposed to be in Siem Reap by now.

“From my experience I would say it is out of character for her not to come back after a few hours and it is a small island.

“Even if you go your separate ways after a few drinks you see people again 10 or 20 minutes later. She should have come back by now.”

Ryan explained that the hostel held passports to ensure customers paid the bill but that Miss Bambridge had not gone back for hers.

“She hasn’t gone back for that or checked out which raises a red flag,” he added.

“I don’t know who has her belongings but have been told her purse, money and phone have been found."

Ryan added: “It is nearly 48 hours now, that’s a long time not to be seen on such a small island.”

Ryan said he understood that the family of Miss Bambridge, 21, had been in contact with Cambodian police since her disappearance.

Social media, Koh Rong Community, 2 hours ago - If anyone wants to assist, search parties have been organized to go out first thing tomorrow morning. Best of luck to all.
Ben Warner - Just to confirm the search will happen tomorrow morning, please meet as mentioned at Runaways at 7:30

I’d like to point out that this is a serious situation and anyone keen to help must consider this.

Any helpers need to be prepared for tough terrain and be prepared to help with any first aid that could be necessary.

Trekking gear is required, first aid kits, tourches, waterproof clothing, spare clothes if you get wet, phones for communication and any food or drink you’ll need for the day.

Currently we plan to split into teams to search different areas along the coast with Adam providing support with his boat. We’ll decide the groups and who goes where in the morning when we meet.

Thanks in advance to everyone thinking of joining. Get your stuff together and we’ll see you in the morning for a full briefing of the days plans and safety procedures to follow.

So the circumstances sound more than suspicious, especially when phone, money and other personal belongings are found and the ID card is kept at the accommodation. Even more weird the reaction of the police, after 3 days "active" to be, just when personal belongings of a missing person are found, which one does not leave behind as a rule. I hope the young girl is found quickly and healthy again, which is terrible to read for family, relatives and friends who are far away.

Police beach isn't really a beach, more of a break in the track covered in sand known for drug fueled parties. Here's hoping she just hooked up & is still having a good time. Not weird for the police at all as it would probably of been their first thought.
