Reward for missing diver doubled

KAMALA: The reward being offered for information leading to the safe return of 25-year-old dive instructor Phikun “Nori” Srisaksungnoen, who has been missing since November 29, has been doubled to 100,000 baht. Mystified by K. Nori’s disappearance, close friend and workmate Marcus Etter increased the reward he first offered soon after she went missing. The last time he saw K. Nori was at 10:30 pm at a party in Kamala on the night she vanished. Her last words were,”Goodnight. I’ll see you tomorrow.” As each day passes, Mr Etter becomes more concerned about K. Nori’s welfare. “I hope she’s alive but I also do expect the worst,” he said. Mr Etter tole the Gazette that police officers have told him to be patient and wait but he is not impressed by the advice. Despairingly, he said, “There are only excuses, one after another.” K. Nori had been working for Mr Etter at Merlin Divers for about six months but their friendship blossomed well before then. “We miss having her around, her smile and happiness – just everything,” he said. “I’ve contacted many people and none of them know where she is. “She went home and from [that night] I’ve never seen her again. I don’t know why she disappeared. We just want to find her.” Mr Etter said K. Nori’s personal life was unhappy at times. She was still living with her ex-husband and their two children at the time she disappeared.
