A man has been released on bail as police continue their investigation into the mysterious disappearance of an Australian man and his Thai wife in northern Thailand.

Alan Hawk (name transliterated from Thai) and his wife Nott Suddaen, both 61, were reported missing on Thursday by a concerned friend. The friend visited the couple’s home after being unable to contact them. After she could not find the couple after home she reported the matter to the police.

Officers later found blood stains, which looked like someone had tried to clean, on the ground outside the property. The couple’s white Ford Ranger was also missing. Thai media reported that Nott’s brother had been arrested by police initially over the missing vehicle.

Police say they have CCTV footage of the brother entering the property on September 19. The vehicle was later picked on CCTV being driven in Sukhothai and Lampang on September 21.

The brother denies involvement and has now been released after family members stumped up 200,000 baht in bail money. Police are yet to confirm whether the Australian man and his wife are alive but have said their investigations are ongoing.

Officers currently believe the disappearance could be related to a family feud. They added that it is likely two or more people are involved in the disappearance.

Thai media went to the home of the brother and questioned his wife who also denied any involvement. The missing couple have reportedly lived at their home in Phrae’s Muang District for more than 20 years. The couple’s daughter who lives in England is understood to have arrived in Thailand yesterday.

Sunshine International, Thailand’s leading brand of retirement residences says that their project which was due to be constructed near Chiang Mai’s city centre has now been cancelled.

Sunshine International, a retirement property that included around the clock medical facilities, on site doctors and nurses, and state of the art facilities, was due to be built on a five rai site in central Chiang Mai.

But ThaiVisa reports that the company says, due to the problems the city is experiencing with poor air quality, smog and pollution, it has been forced to cancel the Sunshine International Retirement Residences project.

Andrew Stocks of Sunshine International said they had an increase in people contacting them saying they have been forced to leave Chiang Mai because of the smog.

He said that due to the negative impact the project is currently not viable.

Andrew said his company will now focus on its other retirement projects located in Hua Hin, as well as a soon to be announced project in Phuket. He said Sunshine International would consider returning to Chiang Mai again if the smog situation improved.

Andrew called on the authorities to step in to help protect the livelihoods of local people who rely on income generated by the tourism industry in the region.
