Man sparks major hunt after going missing on honeymoon in Malaysia

A west Cumbrian man sparked a major police hunt after he went missing while on his honeymoon in Malaysia.


Jonathan Kemp, 28, whose family run the Captain Nelson pub in Maryport, had an argument with his new wife Alyson, 24, from Cockermouth, last Friday.

He is reported to have walked out of the hotel and was not found by police until two days later.

It is understood that his parents, Mary and Christian Wilson, have flown out to Malaysia.

The couple, who were married on June 28, were supposed to be leaving for Bali the day after he went missing. It has been reported in a Malaysian newspaper that Mrs Kemp became frantic and tried to call Jonathan several times.

Mr Kemp, known as Jonny, was found by a passer-by at about 3.30pm on Saturday but police only managed to track him down on Sunday. He appeared to be drunk and was admitted to hospital for treatment.

Mrs Kemp said: “He didn’t think he was in Kuala Lumpur. He thought he was back home in Maryport. I had to remind him where we were.”

New law allows police to stop drivers and test for the influence of drugs. Will it work?

It must. Drug-driving, like drink-driving, is a killer

How can it? New law keeps giving police more to do, while police numbers are being cut. Madness!

There's no evidence of law preventing use of mobile phones in cars working, so why would it?
