Australia news Briton goes missing after injuring head on Australia camping trip
Aslan King, who is from Bristol, may have become disoriented, say police
A British man has disappeared in Australia after having a medical episode and injuring his head, according to local police.
Aslan King, 25, was camping with friends near Princetown, Victoria, when he ran into the bush after sustaining the injury at around 2am local time on Saturday.
A police spokeswoman told the Age newspaper that the illustrator, who is from Bristol, “suddenly got up and ran from the area into surrounding bushland” near a bridge. “It’s believed Aslan may be disoriented and become lost in the bush,” she said.
King’s friends told Nine News that they were drinking together when he appeared to have a seizure and fell off his chair and injured his head.
They added that he clambered under a car and than ran into the bushland when they tried to restrain him. The group searched the area – which is near the Twelve Apostles limestone rocks – but could not find him and subsequently contacted police.
Hours before he disappeared, King posted a video of a sunset at the Twelve Apostles on his Instagram account on Friday.
King, who is reported to have relocated to Australia two weeks ago, also posted footage of his road trip along the Great Ocean Road. He is described as of medium build with short, dark hair. He was wearing a grey tracksuit and hoodie with green trainers and may have blood on his forehead.
The Foreign Office said: “Our staff are seeking further information following the disappearance of a British man near Princetown, Australia, and are in contact with the Australian police.”
