Missing Chinese tourist found

The 35-year-old Chinese tourist went missing for two days while visiting Sriracha Tiger Zoo with her tour group since Sunday afternoon was found this morning safe and sound.

Mrs Gao Li Ping was staying with a local Thai family at about 4 kilometres from the zoo.

She was cooking food at the village house as a team of local journalist team located her.

Local authorities are comforting her and are convincing her to return home.

Mrs Gao Li Ping, 35 was wearing white shirt and red shorts when she went missing on Sunday.

The last place she was seen in the CCTV camera of the zoo was at the pond of the zoo.

Earlier Chonburi police commander Pol Maj Gen Ampol Buarabporn ruled out suicide theory with reason she might want to stay alone awhile for going to the pond by herself.

However the police have sought cooperation from divers to search for her to make sure she didn't misstep and fall into the pond accidentally.

Thorough search of the zoo 's crocodile farm and tiger zone from CCTV did not show her visiting these places, therefore prompting authorities to believe she didn't commit suicide.
