Five Cameroonian athletes ‘missing’ at Commonwealth Games

Five Cameroonian athletes have gone missing in Australia the state-owned Cameroon Radio Television reported on Tuesday.

The incident took place whiles they were participating at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast Australia.

The initial report said three athletes had gone missing namely: Olivier Matam (Weight lifter) and two boxers; Ndzie Tchoyi and Simplice Fotsala.

The list was later updated with one Minkoumba Petit David and another weightlifter, Arcangeline Fouodji Sonkbou. The Association has reported their disappearance to the police.
