port moresby - The missing British TV maker and adventurer Benedict Allen is 'alive and well' seen in the vicinity of a runway in Papua New Guinea.
That reports the BBC. BBC correspondent Frank Gardner said earlier that Mr Allen had asked for help on which everything was put into operation to save the TV-maker.
The 57-year old Benedict Allen was dropped in the jungle three weeks ago. Nothing has been heard from him since then.
When he did not show up at his scheduled flight home, his family sounded alarm.
It was agreed that he would fly to Hong Kong on Sunday from Port Moresby for a speech. Allen is the father of three children.
Allen traveled alone and tried to find the withdrawn Yaifo tribe, which he met for the first time thirty years ago. The tribe is not one of the world's last contacts with the outside world.
