Family plea for help: Lyneham man missing in Thailand

The family of a Wiltshire backpacker, who has been missing in Thailand for almost a week, are growing increasingly concerned.

Missing: Jordan Jacobs

21-year-old Jordan Jacobs, from Lyneham was last seen at a restaurant on the island of Ko Phi Phi Don on Saturday.

Ms Jacobs told the Mail Online: “Saturday morning my mum received a message via Facebook from my brother which basically said he can never see us again, that he is sorry he can’t see us one last time, that he loved us etc.

“He was upset and said that the man wouldn’t let him leave. That he was scared of him. This is not like my brother.

“Only last week he was talking about coming home for Christmas.”

Jordan has dark hair, brown eyes and distinctive tattoos on his arms and chest.

In her Facebook post, Ms Jacobs said: “We are being contacted hourly by people from around the world offering to help or with information. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you for all of your generosity.

“Any information no matter how small you think it is could be could be huge. Any sightings or potential sightings. Any contact. Anything.

“We want to have him home safe.”

A Foreign Office spokesman confirmed that he had been reported missing and his family were being offered support.

“We can confirm that a British National – Jordan Jacobs – was reported missing on 12 December 2015,” he said.

“We are providing consular assistance to his family.”
