Missing husband found drunk by passersby
Safe and sound: Kemp was found by passersby in Salak South.

KUALA LUMPUR- What was supposed to be a honeymoon in Malaysia for newlyweds Jonathan Kemp and Alyson Jackson turned into despair when the young man "disappeared" after an argument with his wife.

However, just less than 48 hours later, the story took yet another twist when the missing husband was discovered by police in a drunk condition.

It is believed that Kemp was found by passersby in Salak South at about 3.30pm on Saturday but police only managed to track him down yesterday.

He was sent to the Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) for treatment, said Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad.

The wife, 24, lodged a police report on early Saturday morning when Kemp, 28, did not return to the couple's hotel room in Bukit Bintang here after he stormed out following a row with her since Friday night.

Jackson said she tried contacting him on his cellphone and Facebook, but to no avail.

According to Jackson, her husband's disappearance was a cause for concern because he was acting a little strangely before leaving the hotel.

"He didn't think he was in Kuala Lumpur. He thought he was back home in Maryport, England.

"I had to remind him where we were," she added.

Jackson said that her husband had seen "people who were not there".

The couple had arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday and were to leave for Bali, Indonesia, today.

Jackson told The Star that they have been married for a week.
