The message posted by Jordan Jacobs’ family after he went missing in Thailand. See SWNS story SWTHAI; A British traveller has disappeared in Thailand after telling his parents that a man had taken him to an island and “wouldn’t let him leave”. Jordan Jacobs, 21, went missing after accepting a free ride to one of the Phi Phi islands from a man on the mainland, days before he was due to fly home for Christmas. The next day, he sent a message to his mother saying he was scared of the man, would never see them again and was sorry he could not have said goodbye. His worried family from Lyneham, Wilts., are pleading for his safe return and fear he is being held against his will.
