YUNNAN – A 35-year-old Chiang Rai woman has been tearfully reunited with her 59-year-old mother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and depression, after she went missing for eight months.
The woman was found by police this week as she wandered on the R3A Highway in Kunming City in the southwest China province of Yunnan in China.
Suchada Ajor tearfully embraced her mother, Kaewmanee Ajor, as they finally saw each other again at the local hospital on Thursday, the day after Thai Immigration Police had arranged for Suchada to fly to China from Chiang Rai to fetch her.
Ms. Kaewmanee had reportedly travelled on foot on the highway which links Chiang Rai to Laos and China’s Kunming City after her disappearance from home in Muang Chiang Rai, Immigration Bureau chief Pol Lt-General Surachet Hakpal said.
