UPDATE: Missing Russian woman in Phuket last seen after going into the sea

Phuket –

A missing Russian woman was last seen after going into the sea in Thang and left her clothes and shoes on a beach.

Our previous story:

A 53-year-old female Russian tourist has gone missing from a hotel in the Thalang district.

Now for the update:

At 10:00 A.M. on Thursday (October 20th) Ms. Elena left the room to the Nai Thon Beach nearby with her friends. She went into the sea alone.

At 11:00 A.M. her friends went back to the room until noon but Ms. Elena was not back. They called her but she did not answer. They checked her hotel room and found that she left her phone in the room.

At 4:00 P.M. they went out to search for her. They only found her towel and shoes left on the beach. They decided to contact help.

A search was launched by the Sakoo Police, the Phuket Tourist Police, and others since yesterday on both land and in the sea. So far, however, there is still no sign of her. Elena reportedly suffers from memory loss issues.

The names of the friends were withheld by Phuket law enforcement and there was no immediate answer as to why they didn’t stay while Elena went swimming.
