Wow:

French police have launched an investigation into the disappearance of Interpol‘s president.

Meng Hongwei, a Chinese government minister, was reported missing after travelling to his native country last week.

The 64-year-old lives in Lyon with his wife and children, who have not heard from him since he left for China on 29 September, according to reports. […]

Interpol said secretary-general Jurgen Stock, rather than Mr Meng, was the “full-time official responsible for the day-to-day running” of the organisation.

It added: “Interpol’s General Secretariat headquarters will not comment further.”

Maybe he’s just having trouble connecting to the internet…
