Khalid said that Chong was seen crossing the border into Thailand at about 6.30am on last Friday (April 7).

“He is in Thailand. We are not sure of his intentions going there but I want to warn those trying confuse people that as though he was kidnapped,” he said, adding that police were working with its Thai counterparts to track him in Thailand.

Khalid said there was also no record of him coming back into Malaysia from Thailand.
