Four days after Singaporean medical student Kouk Leong Jin went missing in Athens, someone checked in online for a flight to Singapore booked under his name.

A spokesman for the airline, Thai Airways, told The Straits Times on Tuesday that an e-ticket was issued on Oct 1 but no one with that e-ticket turned up at the Athens International Airport that afternoon.

The airline's system did not capture what time the Internet check-in was done or where the person had logged in from.

The Straits Times understands that the Greek police are now trying to trace the person through the Internet Protocol address - a unique number assigned to each device connected to the Internet.

No intention to be mean. But I think he could have been robbed and killed. It was reported in TODAY that Greek authorities picked up signal of his mobile from a remote village, some distance away from Greece.

We still hope for the best, but things don't look good.
Hopefully, they can trace the IP address.

Leads trickle in for S'porean missing in Greece
Yahoo! NewsroomBy Jeanette Tan | Yahoo! Newsroom – 1 hour 24 minutes ago

A member of the Greek police told The New Paper on Tuesday that a man resembling Kouk was seen in the capital on Monday.

A female passer-by, who claimed to have spotted him in Central Athens, called the police after seeing a poster of Kouk listed as a missing person.

The police staff said, "His clothes, height, weight all match. But we don't know for sure if it's him or not."



A glimpse of hope.

even before the present financial crisis, Greece is not considered as a safe place

as an example, if you rent a car from a car rental company like Hertz or Avis, say from Swiss or France, you are NOT allowed to drive it into Greece. that shows you how safe they are

I feel sad..............he is afterall someody's son.

Even if he is not alive, at least the body has to be found or there will never be a closure.

His wife is a teacher in my child's school......She is such a lovely lady, always smiling, bubbly...it was so shocking to view her on TV in tears & to hear the sad news.......all our prayers are there for the family. Hope we can hear some good news soon.
