THE AWOL boyfriend of missing expat Lisa Brown is allegedly hiding out in Thailand.
Liverpudlian Simon Corner has been wanted by Spanish police since the Scot vanished from her Sotogrande home in November.
A tourist claims to have spotted the 33-year-old at a Thai resort in Pattaya – a busy town known for its nightlife.
A European Arrest Warrant has also now been issued for Corner’s arrest.
The tourist reported the sighting after seeing the former yacht dealer at a popular party resort.
“I recognised him from the pictures online,” he said. “I am sure it was him, I saw him walking around.”
Originally fleeing to the Far East, Corner returned to Malaga in January to answer questions.
However he failed to hand himself in and has not been seen since.
Lisa’s brother Craig Douglas, told the Olive Press that he is not surprised that Corner has again fled to Asia.
“We knew he wouldn’t hand himself in despite all the promises,” he said. “If people out there know where he is and if they have any sort of conscious they should look speak up.
“If you know anything, give him up. We will never stop.”
Spanish police are now working closely with police in Scotland and on Merseyside to locate Corner.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: “We’ve been contacted by the Guardia Civil over the investigation into the disappearance of a Scottish woman near Gibraltar.
“We’re working with them, Police Scotland and the National Crime Agency in trying to locate a man with links to Merseyside.”
