PHUKET – March 16,2014; Ms Strizheus was found inside a hotel room yesterday by a maid with injuries to her neck and wrists. The maid called the police.

Ms Strizheus was taken to Thalang Hospital last night.

Police said at the moment Ms Strizheus was refusing to speak, and there were still no details about where her boyfriend Alexei Slabinskiy was.

A search began on Friday for the missing couple, who were feared kidnapped after a series of phone calls.

Early yesterday morning, a team of police and Russian embassy staff visited the couple’s Kamala house, but found no-one at home, and no signs of foul play.

Russian citizen Mr Slabinskiy came to Phuket in April 2013 together with his girlfriend Ms Strizheus. The 39-old finance broker told friends and family that he was headed to Thailand for a holiday, and to learn Thai.

But their romantic life in Kamala may have turned into a nightmare on March 7 this year.

The Russian couple called their relatives claiming that they were in trouble in Phuket, and urgently needed USD100,000 to solve some unexpected problems. After the call, Aleksei’s and Yana’s cell phones went silent, and their concerned families raised the alarm.

Then, on Thursday, Yana called her sister in Russia and told her that she had been kidnapped.

“If I don’t arrive back in [the Russian city of] Vladivostok tomorrow, that means I’m already dead,” her sister quoted Yana as saying in a whisper.

According to the sister, the conversation lasted for only 30 seconds, and after that Yana’s phone went dead again.

The Russian Embassy in Bangkok, along with Royal Thai police and Russian-speaking police volunteers have already been informed about the case.

Kamala police officers confirmed to The Phuket News that an investigation into the missing couple’s whereabouts is already under way.
