The website missingabroad.org is looking for the British women Lauren Hebden (27) from Bradford. She is missing since 22nd December 2014. According to the site she went travelling in September 2013 and kept in touch regularly via email and Skype. She stopped in September 2014, apart from one email in December 2014. Missingabroad.org says that "she is last believed to have been in Ko Tao".
A Facebook page with the name Lauren Hebden seems to show, that this person started for a holiday in Thailand in September 2013. According to the Facebook page she worked as Scuba instructor on Ko Tao, first at Roctopus Dive from October 2013 until January 2014, later at Mojo Divers. The two dive shops did not confirm that she worked there. But on the Facebook page of Lauren Hebden you see her with T-Shirts of Roctopus. And Roctopus posted this picture with her. The last post on her page here is from March 2014. A friend uploaded a picture of her on april 29.

People living on Ko Tao say on Facebook that Lauren Hebden was seen on Ko Tao in the last days (here). Especially Thelma Mc Nelly is saying this. It could be that Lauren Hebden is just refusing to call her parents. As everywhere else in Thailand some foreigners are working without work permit also on Ko Tao. This makes it difficult to find out the truth.

"We are happy to report that Lauren Hebden has been found safe and well, thanks for your great support". This is a Tweet of @MissingAbroad published today. This organisation had published before, that she was missing.
