A Thai woman on Thursday asked Kanchanaburi police to search for her British husband who disappeared from a resort following a dispute with her.

 

Supapansa Pornkhunthod, 39, a resident of Bangkok's Suan Luang district, filed a report with the Sai Yok police that her husband, Robert Lighttel (spelling not confirmed), 51, disappeared from his room at the Krit Raft House resort on the Kwae Noi River in the Sai Yok National Park, Sai Yok district on Tuesday morning.

 

She said she and her husband checked into the resort on Tuesday evening but she had a quarrel with him so she left the room to stay with another woman, the resort's chef.

 

When she checked her resort room the next morning, her husband had disappeared. He was last seen at 7am standing in front of the resort with no shirt on.

 

Police and park officials and rescuers from a local foundation were dispatched to help search for him.

So he went off in the huff,

 

According to the report, she slept elsewhere that night.

Can't say I'd hang around until morning with a woman who tried that one on with me.

I've always had a firm rule (which I tell them in advance), "Not with me at night = end of relationship"

The body of a man from Northern Ireland was found floating on the Kwae Noi River in Kanchanaburi's Sai Yok district on Thursday morning shortly after his Thai wife went to the police to say he had been missing for two days. 
 

The body of Robert Lytle, 51, was found just hours after his wife, Supapansa Pornkhunthod, 39, a resident of Bangkok's Suan Luang district, filed a report with the Sai Yok police.

 

The body was found 30km downstream from the resort. It has been sent for a post-mortem at a local hospital.

 

The woman said her husband disappeared from his room at the Krit Raft House resort on the Kwae Noi River in the Sai Yok National Park, Sai Yok district on Tuesday morning.

 

She said they checked into the resort on Monday evening but then had an argument so she left the room to stay with another woman, the resort's chef.

 

When she checked the resort room the next morning, her husband had disappeared.

I do find it suspicious that she went to the Police so early , as in the same day that he went missing.

   After a argument and storming off for the night and coming back the next day , you would have thought that she would have waited for a few days , as he may be out drinking , before raising the alarm .

You are on a raft on the river, not many places to go drinking it's pretty remote.

Then a natural thought would be that he jumped into a tuk-tuk and headed to the nearest town.

Its quite abnormal for the Police to conduct a search when hes been missing for such a short time

Normally they wait for a week , before taking any notice .

   There was a thread on TV last week about a felang getting ready to walk out on his Thai wife , the wife with the "cousin" staying at his house .

   Hope this is nothing to do with him

I don't know the circumstances but I would say it's normal in that situation. If he'd walked to the road to catch a bus someone would have noticed he'd gone that way. Kanchanaburi is 110km's away, you cannot get a tuk tuk you would have to book a taxi or wait for a service bus but not being from the area he probably didn't know that. Once you've searched the resort and didn't find him then I would be worried.

Gut feeling. I smell something off here. The again I know noting about the case or the people involved. All too quick from the reporting to finding the body........

 

RIP Sir
