A British tourist in Thailand has gone missing days after he told family over the phone that he would never see them again.
Jordan Jacobs was due to fly home to his family in Lyneham, Wiltshire, yesterday but did not make his flight.
The last time the 21-year-old was seen he was accepting a free ride from one Phi Phi island to another.
The day after he was last seen in the flesh, Jordan messaged his mother to tell family that he would not see them ever again.
He did manage to make a call to his mother, but he echoed his earlier message and explained that a Thai man was not willing to let him leave, and that he was scared of him.
The call was made from the phone of a Cypriot tourist, who reported that Jordan appeared in front of him with no shoes and no bag.
His sister posted the following message on Facebook and it has been shared over 5000 times as the hunt for Jordan continues.
Speaking to the MailOnline Emily Jacobs said:
There was no more contact until Monday morning where my brother appeared online, and after few attempts a I was able to speak to him on the phone using the Facebook wifi messenger.
I was on the phone for 90 seconds. He couldn’t or wouldn’t tell me where he was. He said “I need to keep you all safe”.
I asked if he was ok, where he was, and he said “I’ve said too much. I can’t talk. I love you.” And that was it. We’ve had no contact since.”
The investigation is currently centred on the local man, estimated to be in his late 20’s, that Jordan was last seen with.
He is believed to work on or own a farm on Ko Phi Phi Don.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the family in the hope it may lead to Jordan’s safe return.
