Police are investigating the disappearance of a Suphan Buri cattle farmer whose car was found abandoned ten kilometres from his house two days ago.

Four cows are also missing.

No one knew Prasong Likhitchon, 59, had vanished from his 20-rai farm in Moo 2, Tambon Kra Krajome, Don Chedi district, until someone reported a pickup truck being left for two days in Moo 1, Tambon Nong Sarai.

The province’s Land Transport Office determined it belonged to Prasong, but police found his home empty and unlocked and his cattle undernourished.

Moo 2 village head Manas Thanthawong said Prasong lived alone and he hadn’t seen him for three days.

Manas said neighbours heard dogs barking at about 2am on Saturday and saw two pickups parked at Prasong’s farm.

Then three of Prasong’s cows were found walking along a road five kilometres from the farm and had to be herded back.

The village head counted four of Prasong’s 32 cows missing.

Police surmised that Prasong might have been kidnapped by people with whom he’d had a row or might have awakened to confront cattle thieves and been abducted.
