A 32-year-old man who was on a romantic getaway in Bali with a woman he met on Tinder has disappeared, leaving his family and friends fearing he may have met with foul play.
Josh Goudswaard was expected to return home to Perth on the evening of November 6 after telling his colleagues he was travelling with a woman known only as Anita.
The New Zealand national, who lives in Cottesloe, Western Australia, had met the woman on the match-making app just two days before he embarked on his trip to Indonesia.
However, his friend Aaron Smith said loved ones are now fearing he may have met with foul play after he failed to board his flight home.
‘It’s totally out of character. He has never done anything like this before and he has left a lot of things in limbo,’ Mr Smith told 9 News.
‘We just hope we find him soon. I just hope there’s no foul play at foot.’
Immigration officials have confirmed he never left Bali and a missing persons report has been placed with the New Zealand Police.
The last transaction on his bank statement was made on November 5 as authorities claimed his account has links to the UK.
‘Phones been disconnected & not replying to emails,’ Mr Smith wrote on Facebook.
‘The last transaction on his bank statement was for a small amount registering in Stroke On trent in the UK.’
