A British woman is seeking help in searching for her nephew who has gone missing while trekking in the mountains near Sa Pa in northwestern Vietnam.
Lisa Shaw Webb said Aiden Webb was last seen last Thursday.
“He went trekking in the mountains in northwest Vietnam near Sapa and I lost contact with him after he fell and got lost,” she wrote on fundraising page GoFundMe.
“He is injured and has been gone for two nights and three days.”
Lisa Webb has contacted the local police and they have men searching for Aiden in the mountains.
“Please could everyone share this picture as he has lots of friends who travel in this area? The quicker we get his out, the quicker he can be found,” Lisa wrote in her Facebook page and the entry has been shared more than 33,000 times.
Her pleas have elicited many responses, including from some in Vietnam who said they saw him.
She contacted someone who said they saw him, but unfortunately the pictures they sent her were not his, she said.
Aiden's father and uncle are expected to arrive in Vietnam Tuesday morning.
