Korean mayor goes missing

For perspective, it might be like if the mayor of New York or Los Angeles suddenly disappeared - except that Seoul has 2 million more people than either of those cities.

Police officers said they are looking for Mayor Park Won-sun at Seoul’s Sungbuk neighborhood where his mobile phone signal was last detected.
His daughter called police earlier Thursday and said her father has been unaccounted for, the police officers said, requesting anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media on the matter.


Can't hardly wait for the follow up to this, how far is Seoul from the North Korean border?

RgrF... NK kidnap and kill squads work around the world. Note also that SK has had some pretty bad corruption problems and organized crime issues.

Sounding like a suicide. He left a will like document for his daughter, then turned his phone off in a wooded area not far away. A sexual harassment complaint had been lodged against by a former secretary earlier this week and became public yesterday.
