Just last week, a 22-year-old beautician, Angie from Puchong went missing in Chiang Mai, Thailand soon after informing her mother that she was there to work for some cash. Angie sent her mother a good morning text before she was unreachable.
Angie’s mother constantly updated her Facebook status and urged the public to provide any info about her daughter and shockingly, her daughter commented with a short clip, where Angie is seen telling her mother that she’s safe and sound. But here’s the thing.
Angie did not comment using her own Facebook account, but it was done by an account identified as Moe Aye, and there is no profile picture displayed. In the video, Angie, who is seen ready to eat said that there’s nothing to worry about her safety and assured that she’s not getting beaten.
“I’m perfectly fine and healthy here. Tell the cops to stop bothering the driver that sent me here, because he doesn’t know anything.”
Since her disappearance, Angie’s mother has been worrying about her safety and she is fearful of the possibility that Angie has fallen into the trap of the infamous job scam victims in Thailand and Myanmar.
There were 3 videos that were shared in the comment section of her mother’s FB post. The 1st and 2nd videos focus on how Angie assured the people that she was safe and sound, while the 3rd video shows an image of Angie “happily” working in Myanmar.
All the videos were reshared by the Facebook page 爱旅客- Traveller.
“I doubt she’s really safe”
If you watch the videos closely, despite putting on a smile, Angie’s vision is not directed at the camera alone. Her eyes are looking elsewhere, which prompted many netizens to doubt that she’s really safe.
“She’s not doing it naturally, there’s somebody forcing her to do it. Her eyes are looking everywhere and her voice is cracking. I hope she returns home safely.”
“Looks like she’s not safe.”
“She continuously emphasises her safety, which sounds unsafe to me!”
“Her eye expression says a lot, and something is not right.”
“She’s in danger. Look at her eyes, she’s looking everywhere.”
“Her eye expression tells me that she’s forced to do so.”
“If you can make a video, why can’t you call your mom? Major red flag!”
According to a report by Oriental Daily, Angie’s mother will only believe her daughter is safe and sound when she’s back home. At the time of writing (June 8), Angie has yet to contact her mother personally, and the work to locate her is still being carried out. We wish nothing but safety for Angie and hopefully, she will reunite with her family soon.
