Australia welcomes help to find man missing in North Korea

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australia's prime minister says he remains concerned for an Australian student who is uncontactable in North Korea and has been offered international support to find him.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Friday the plight to Alek Sigley has been raised with him by world leaders attending the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

Morrison dined with President Donald Trump on Thursday night. The prime minister declined to say which government leaders he has discussed the disappearance with and what help had been offered.

Australia has diplomatic ties with North Korea but does not have an embassy is the secretive nation.

Sigley is a 29-year-old Pyongyang university student and tour guide. He has been out of contact since Tuesday and some media reports say he has been detained.
