I am looking for a friend, a member of IN, who went missing in Ladakh/Zanskar on 25th August Protected content . Please read the below and see if you can help in any way.
Grzegorz Latosinski (a.k.a. Gregory or Greg - he used these names while in India) had already spent about a month in Ladakh before deciding to do a trek to a glacier in Zanskar - mentioning Padum and Umasi La to a friend in Poland with whom he was in touch by internet communicators. Unfortunately, it cannot be ruled out that Gregory went for a trek alone and there is no news as to whether he has actually reached any of those places. He has last contacted his friend via internet on 25th August. Greg planned a trek of about 2 weeks and promised to make next contact about 15th September from Katmandhu. However, any of his frends have heard from him since 25th August.
Greg's mom has contacted The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and posted his photo on the Polish missing people database zaginieni.pl. The Ministry has contacted the Polish embassy in India. They have confirmed that as of 3rd November Greg has not left India and I know his Indian visa has expired on 18th November. It is also known that Greg had no plane tickets bought in advance and was low on cash. His mom has contacted his bank in Poland but they have refused to say whether he has withdrown any money since his disappearance.
If by any chance you have seen Grzegorz/Greg/Gregory, please write to the e-mail address mentioned at the poster. Also, if anybody of the you is shortly travelling to the area or has some friends/contacts in the places in question (Padum, Kishtwar or Gulabgarh, maybe also Lamayuru and Darcha/Keylong as starting/ending points for Zanskar treks), it would not harm to ask them if they have seen the missing guy. Maybe anybody can print out the flyer with Gregory's picture and leave a few copies in guesthouses in Padum or Keylong, maybe also in traveller hangouts in Leh or Manali? Your help should be really appreciated. Thanks!
