Dutchman reported missing found safe and well in Pattaya

A Dutchman who had been reported missing has been found safe and well in Pattaya.

Family and friends of Hans Wielaard launched an appeal on social media after they had not heard from their son since visiting Thailand on September 24.

He was due to return to his native Holland on October 15 but never arrived.

The online appeal was then picked by a number of Dutch news outlets.

Mr Wielaard, 45, had told friends he planned to visit Koh Tao.

However, on Sunday tourist police officers tracked Mr Wielaard down to a hotel in Pattaya.

He told officers that he had never actually visited Koh Tao but instead went to Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Pattaya.

Meanwhile, TNA reported that unnamed people had posted about the incident online in a bid to tarnish the reputation of Koh Tao.
