Missing Scot Connor Leslie found ‘safe and well’ in Vietnam

Connor Leslie

THE family of a Scot who went missing in Vietnam after a night out have said he’s been found “safe and well”.

Connor Leslie, 23, from Newtonhill in Aberdeenshire was enjoying the first night of a trip to the Asian country in the city of Hanoi with three other friends before he went missing.

The friends had accepted a lift home from an off-duty taxi driver, but on arrival at their hotel – in the early hours of yesterday morning – the driver sped off with Connor still inside the cab.

That prompted an international manhunt for the 23-year-old with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office saying they were “assisting” the family.

His brother, Ross, 28 and other members of the family took to social media yesterday to ask for help tracing missing Connor.

Last night, the family got news he had been found in Hanoi.

Ross said: “He’s turned up safe and well.

“I’ve not spoken to him for any length of time so I’m not sure the full story.

“But it seems he was dropped off in the middle of nowhere without his phone or money.”

He added the family were grateful to people for helping the search to find Connor.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office says while Vietnam is generally a safe country, tourists can sometimes be the victim of attacks there.

The advice says there have been reports of foreign women in Hanoi being indecently assaulted and harassed.
