Search teams believe they have found the location of the body of a missing Japanese tourist almost two weeks after he disappeared.

missing Japanese tourist ThailandThe 50-60 year old Japanese man disappeared August 12th while cycling in the Mae Sai, Chiang Rai area almost two weeks ago, reported Daily News.

A search of the area failed to find him until villager Bunraeng Chompupor had a dream that his spirit was trapped in the Khun Nam Nang Norn Cave.

A group of locals went to the area for another look where they conducted a ceremony according to local superstitious beliefs outside the cave entrance.

They soon detected a foul odour coming from the cave that they believe is from the dead body of the man.

A provincial search team including divers was called in who made an effort to reach the source of the smell.

But this proved to be impossible as there was deep water in the cave after heavy rains.

The search team are continuing to look at ways to get inside so that they can complete the job. The tourist has not been named.
