PHUKET: A distressed father is appealing to the Phuket public for help in finding his 43-year-old son who failed to make connection flights home to the US on Wednesday.

Wayne Bean expected his son to arrive back in Los Angeles on November 28.

However, after checking with the airlines it became obvious that his son, Brett Bean, had not made his 8:25am connection from Bangkok to Hong Kong. Wayne Bean does not have his son’s Phuket-Bangkok flight details for November 27, so he is not sure if Brett has even left Phuket.

“He has a year-around apartment somewhere near Patong beach; [I] don’t have any other info. He is a big surfer, hangs out around the beach with lots of other surfers,” Mr Bean wrote in an email to the Phuket Gazette.

“I have reported him missing to the US Embassy in Bangkok and Hong Kong,” he added.

Mr Bean described his son as slender, about 77 kilograms, and about 2 meters tall with “very short hair or bald”. Brett also has a large tattoo on the inside of his forearm.

The last contact Mr Bean had with his son was on November 25, when he received an email saying that Brett had had lunch with friends.

Anyone with information that may help locate Brett Bean is urged to contact the US Embassy Bangkok at + 66-2-205-4049.

Strong wind and waves this morning closes Phuket’s beaches, one swimmer rescued | The Thaiger

Phuket’s Rawai Mayor, Aroon Solos, ordered all beaches in the area to close after a foreigner was rescued this morning after being unable to make it back to shore. The foreigner was swimming off Ao Sane beach, just north of the popular Nai Harn Beach, when lifeguards were sent out to help bring him back to shore. The recent weather has been partly attributed to Tropical Storm Noul as other beaches areas around Patong have been closed since Friday. Mayor Aroon ordered both the Nai Harn and Ya Nui beaches closed until further notice. Noul crossed over the Vietnamese coastline […]

Phuket residents going hungry after local government assistance runs out | The Thaiger

Residents in Phuket, particularly those living in and around the west coast townships, are reportedly going hungry as the government’s municipal budget to provide food has been depleted. Despite efforts to revive tourism in the area, thousands of people are still in need of donated food to survive and continue to queue up for donated food every day. A public relations staff member at the Patong municipality says, sadly, there is no budget to do any more food handouts in the near future and that there is no word on when or if there will be any more handouts.

But the remnants of the storm won’t “slam” into Northern Thailand as one news site claimed – rather it will be a lot of rain and increased winds. The storm is expected to cross into Thailand around the Mukdahan province some time early tomorrow, Around the country, Saturday will be the […]
