Search on for family

National and provincial police in Kampong Speu yesterday searched the house of a family of five who have been missing from Chbar Morn town’s Rakar Thom commune since September in the hope of finding something that would explain their disappearance, officials said.

However, Sam Samoun, the deputy provincial police chief, said nothing had been found at the home of Frenchman Vallier Lauren David, 42, and his two daughters and two sons, who are all missing.

The French Embassy had asked national police last month to help them find the family, Sam Samoun said.

Huy Sy Thoeun, Chbar Morn town governor, said the Frenchman had come to the province in 2007 and his Cambodian wife had died in 2009.

Police said they had photos of the family that they would distribute across the country in an attempt to find them.
