Help Needed! Missing Person in HK/Asia

This report makes me very nervous. What was a White female Canadian tourist doing staying in Chungking Mansions if she was traveling alone? Surely she knew, as a woman traveling alone, this was not a safe place for her to stay, that she could be preyed upon by any number of males of different ethnic groups who saw she was traveling unaccompanied and might want to take advantage of that fact? It is very sad to see a solo female traveler being so naive and opening the way for something tragic to have happened to her. Life is risky enough without taking unnecessary risks. I hope she is located and no harm has come to her. But the odds of this being the case are not very good, and less so with each passing day. I have traveled alone on many occasions and women really must take precautions men need not take to protect themselves. Yes, it is sexist that this should be so, but men aren't as evolved they could be, so take precautions we must.

Woah, I hope she is found. I've heard about western girls going missing in Asia and end up working in brothels or found dead or not found at all, they just disappear. I really hope someone finds her

She is already 30. Wonder if a 40 year old woman needs to be accompanied too when she travels.

Skinph55, no woman, of any age, should be staying in a place like Chungking Mansions alone. If you're a woman and traveling alone, you have to spend a bit more money to stay in places that are safer, or you have to stay with friends or friends of friends. Yeah its sexist, its unfair, but it is how the world is. Men are physically stronger than women (and they are very aware of that fact), for that reason there is always the threat that women will be preyed upon by men if they put themselves in situations where that sort of behavior is overlooked, or even condoned. There are plenty of men in this world who are unhappy with strong, independent women and who are just waiting to "teach us a lesson". Women travelers have to keep their eyes and ears open and be concerned with personal safety much more than male travelers. It sucks, but it is the reality.

Guys.....like you, I too am concerned for Ani...... Regarding Ani, I've tried to help the volunteer group who is searching for her briefly this past week. Consisting mostly Ani's family and friends, I actually went out last night on NYE on my own in CWB to pass and paste flyers around the streets. As I've told the group already, I have had to decline the work. Unfortunately I am too tied down at the moment to do anything. I have a new premise/office to move to this month, things to prepare and move, and sadly I had to turn the volunteering work down as I have obligations to my family too. Luckily due to the internet and the flexibility of technology, there has been some success with the search, albeit not the result everyone was expecting. The other day somebody walking with their girlfriend thought they saw a girl like Ani at Tsimshatsui begging for money between 6-7pm outside a bar. She had a cardboard on the floor which said something like 'Hello, my name is Ani. I am Canadian. I have no money, lost my passport and visa and I need to go home'. Going back home the witness searched online, found the Missing Ani page and checked it looked similar to Ani. So he went back to find her...but by then she was gone. So they decided to wait....for a whole day. Within a short while and with some level of perseverance and reluctance by the volunteers, they successfully tracked her down. But it was not Ani. It was a student named Emily who had her China visa refused and had somehow got stuck in HK. You don't realise but with technology we live in very lucky times...especially compared to ancient times like dynastic China where it takes years for information or wherabouts of people to filter through! With luck, we should be finding Ani anytime soon. The only question we are all now working out is....where is she now? That's probably the most crucial bit and it would be helpful if experienced travellers amongst us could shed some light on this. If anyone has any suggestions it would be of great help....and a potential HK$50,000 reward.

I hope there is a break in this case soon.
