Interpol still searching for missing official
PARIS — Interpol said Saturday it has made a formal request to China for information about the agency’s missing president, a senior Chinese security official who seemingly vanished while on a trip home.
The Lyon-based international police agency said it used law enforcement channels to submit its request to China about the status of Meng Hongwei. Its statement said the agency “looks forward to an official response from China’s authorities to address concerns over the president’s well-being,”
China, in the midst of a weeklong holiday, has yet to comment on the 64year-old security official’s disappearance. Calls and faxed questions to the foreign and public security ministries went unanswered.
Meng’s wife says she hasn’t heard from him since he left the French city of Lyon at the end of September. France has launched its own investigation.
Meng is also a vice minister for public security in China.
