Some South Africans stranded abroad have turned to a private investigator in a desperate attempt to get back home.
South African Declan Miller, the manager of Crest Hawk Investigations, a Cambodia-based detective agency, said he had received multiple requests from South Africans in Cambodia and Thailand for assistance.
“The embassy in Bangkok is helpful but they seem to be overwhelmed with work. We have also had a case of a South African elderly male who is stranded in a rural area of Cambodia. His family reached out to us, but he has simply gone off the radar.”
