As some of you may know, my little brother(The one who loves LV) left Singapore at the beginning of September to start college in Manchester,UK. He's always been good a good student and never missed classes. I'd usually email / talk to him at least once a week. Sometimes he's just lazy to reply my email but if I called him, he'd definitely pick up. However, me and my parents have been trying to contact him for the past 4 days and strangely (And very worrying), his cellphone is shut off 24/7 and everytime we call him, we get redirected to his voicebox. He's NEVER been uncontactable and he'd always charge his phone or switch it on until the batteries run dead/have spare battery just in case we call him for some emergency or vice versa because of the time difference. Me and my parents are worried sick, I just called his hostel (It's 6am over there right now) and got the Night-shift manager, Bob to help me check on his room to see if there was anyone in there. Up till this point, I was still quite calm and assuring myself he was just being lazy about calling us back home but Bob came back and told me that the bed hadn't been slept in and the room just had some shopping bags left on the floor with a bag of groceries on the table. Where could he have gone?! I'm beginning to have bad thoughts and fear that he's been mugged or something bad might've happened and I am really on the verge of tears. He told my Mum that he would call us back the next day and since then, he's not been contactable. Both my parents are worried sick at this point as well. He stays at Park View, Moss Lane East M14 4PX. If there are any tPFers from Manchester, can I know if that area is safe? He was arranged to stay there by the City College Manchester. Thank you very much in advance.
