ISLAMABAD, March 14 (Itar-Tass) — A Russian tourist practicing adventure tourism went missing in Pakistan, local police reports said on Wednesday. According to police, Kirill Stepankov, 31, had hitchhiked to Pakistan and went missing in the north-west of that country.
Neither the local authorities, nor the Russian Embassy to Pakistan have any information on his whereabouts. A search operation is in progress.
The missing young man was practicing adventure tourism. In particular, before Pakistan he had traveled, including as a hitchhiker, to other unsafe parts of the globe, such as African countries, Yemen etc.
The last message from him came in November 2011, when he told his relatives that he had been detained in Pakistan without specifying who had detained him.
Pakistan is on the list of countries with an unfavorable political and crime situation. Some regions of that South Asian country are extremely dangerous for foreigners, as numerous groups of extremists operate there.
