Authorities are to renew the search for a 95-year-old grandfather missing since early October near the popular Nam Pien Yorla Pa resort.
A renewed search is to be undertaken soon, despite the unlikely odds of his being found.
The man, identified as Mr. Phouang, accompanied his family on a trip to the popular Nam Pien Yorla Pa resort in Vientiane on 3 October and was separated from his family.
While his family members were enjoying activities, they left him in the care of a 12-year-old girl at the resort’s restaurant. While under the girl’s supervision, the elderly man wandered off.
He was last seen seated below a banana tree at approximately 3:00 pm on 3 October, according to a witness who came forward via social media.
