Singapore mountain climber reported missing in Cambodia

PHNOM PENH - A Singaporean man has been reported missing in Cambodia after telling his girlfriend that he was planning to climb Phnom Aural, according to a Singapore news broadcaster.

In a report late Saturday, the broadcaster identified the man as Sanjay Radakrishna, a 26-year-old trainee teacher in his final year at Singapore's National Institute of Education.

The report said he was last seen with a mountain guide on Tuesday after telling his girlfriend a day earlier that he had set off to climb the mountain. He was supposed to have returned to Singapore on Wednesday afternoon, it added.

"A fellow NIE trainee teacher told Channel NewsAsia that Sanjay is an avid trekker who has been to Everest base camps several times and that he regularly organises climbing trips," the report said.
