Lt Col Somsak Thongkleang said, “We are looking for her now. We have also put out a warning to other hotels in the area to keep an eye out for any suspicious person, Thai or foreigner, that comes in to their area because it is high season now and theft can happen at any time.

“Business operators have also been advised to warn tourists about theft and to lock theirs room and keep their belongings safe.”
