port moresby - An experienced television maker and adventurer who made six documentaries for the BBC is missing in Papua New Guinea. There he searched, without phone or GPS, to a mysterious tribe that has no contact with the outside world.
The 57-year-old Benedict Allen was dropped into the jungle three weeks ago. Since then nothing has been learned from him. It was agreed that he would fly to Hong Kong on Sunday from Port Moresby for a speech. His wife Lenka is very concerned, reports Daily Mail. Allen is the father of three children. 'He would never miss such a speech, if nothing has happened,' spokesman spokeswoman Lenka said.
All is very experienced. He walked into the Gobi desert in China and crossed the Amazon, as highlights of numerous survival rides. Ever to raise his own dog to survive.
This time he sought the Yaifo, a remote tribe who- as one of the last in the world- has no contact with the outside world. The area in which the tribe lives is known for the many crocodiles. Presumably, the Yaifo are also cannibals, a family spokeswoman said.
'He is very experienced, very smart and well-equipped. He knows how to survive in the most remote and hostile places on earth. He would never give up, 'said the spokesman.
