More than 10 years ago, Madam Loh Lee Hiang called her family from Thailand to say she was in trouble. They tried to help, but lost contact with her.
She is not alone. Every year, some Singaporeans go missing overseas.
The Crime Library has already received two such cases this year.
Madam Loh's family members say she wouldn't have broken contact intentionally.
But others who have gone missing don’t want to be found, it seems. They might be hoping to start a new life overseas.
In any case, it is harder, and more expensive to investigate a disappearance that took place overseas, a private investigator told TNP.
