The parents of a 14 year old schoolgirl missing for the past two weeks have now filed a complaint with the Crime Suppression Division (CSD), saying they are convinced she’s been kidnapped.

They say their daughter last used social media in Rayong province (east of Pattaya) on December 28, the day after she vanished. A police source has revealed they had evidence the girl appears to have taken extra clothes with her and was living in another province, having been taken by a man she knew.

The source says the girl had left a note where she complained of being “tired and under tremendous stress from her family”.

Her parents say they haven’t heard anything from either the girl or anyone with her since she left Sai Panya School in Bangkok in a tuk-tuk, according to CCTV footage, and disappeared. It appears her disappearance came after she chatted with someone on social media.

At first the family thought the studious girl, who had no boyfriend and hadn’t had a fight with any family members, might have run away to be with friends for the New Year holidays.

Although they initially filed a missing person report with the Plappachai 1 police station, they had hoped she would return after the holidays but she never did.

Her friends also say she hasn’t been with any of them.

TAT expects 2.3 million tourists for this year’s Songkran | The Thaiger

The Tourism Authority of Thailand is expecting more than 2.3 million local and foreign tourists will join the various Songkran celebrations this year. They say that should generate 20 billion baht+ in revenue for tourism and tourism-related services.

TAT’s Governor Yuthasak Supasorn says 300,000 international arrivals are expected to celebrate the five day festival starting April 12, along with two million locals who will travel to celebrate Songkran this year. Songkran falling on a weekend this year will also bolster local tourism numbers.

The number of Songkran-specific visitors is up this year, partly because of the growing popularity of the festival internationally and the government extending the holiday to five days this year, now starting on April 12 (although ‘Songkran, the Thai New Year, is actually on April 13).

Songkran festival extended HERE.

He admits that the bad publicity about the poor air quality in the northern regions is a problem, especially around Chiang Mai which has become a big international visitor favorite over recent yers.

Chiang Mai is one of nine provinces in the North struggling with smoke haze, mostly because of open-air burning of farm waste and rubbish, and localised bush fires. The heavy smog has caused temporary suspension of flights between Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son although flights into Chiang Mai have been unaffected so far.
