[at the police station] One lady officer understands English and translates my note. Her colleagues grin, but one look at my face and they know this isn’t funny games. Identikit of the person missing, when and where was he seen last. Possible route, the time when he could have gone missing etc. They are writing out a proper report. Short-wave transmitters are now in action: Agents who are in the field at present are briefed on the type of emergency we’re dealing with… After all this is a gift from my mum: combine this with 50USD prize money and we all appear to be on the same page.
Tekst ogloszenia, ktore zlamie nawet twardego Kambodzanskiego policjanta:
Hello! My name is Franek. On the 4th of August 2008 I lost somewhere in the Angkor Wat my little teddy bear- Pablo. For last 13 months we have been traveling around the world together. It was a gift from my mother and the only companion I had all that time, through 17 countries. As you can imagine we’re very close. Really. And now he is gone, alone somewhere in the Cambodian ruins. If you find him, please contact me or send it by regular mail. I promise to return all the costs. It’s not worth a lot of money, but it has great sentimental value for me!
