Korean man missing in Malaysia

A Korean man is missing in Malaysia, prompting embassy officials and local police to launch a search, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said yesterday.

The 53-year-old man, identified only by his surname Kim, was last in touch with his family on Oct. 30, one day after he told them that he was heading to meet someone at the airport, the ministry said in a statement.

Kim has lived in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, for 10 years and served as vice president of the Korean community there.

The Korean Embassy in Kuala Lumpur has asked local police to conduct a swift probe and is carrying out its own search efforts by spreading fliers in areas with large Korean populations, the ministry said.
