BBC News - British sailor Timothy MacColl missing in Dubai Mmmmm after reading the article, I am feeling a bit worried for this poor fellow as he did get into a taxi on his own in Dubai. Being where Dubai is, I'd never get into a taxi any on my own there or any middle eastern/north african country. Just too much of a risk these days and I dont fancy being paraded in an orange jump suit on Al-Jazeera. I hope for his sake he is safe, but who is to say 'Al-Queda' have a cell there and had been watching the RN ship and taking note of faces coming and going. Or could it be a chance abduction if he has been taking? I know troops can get a bit shit faced and may end up missing for 24 hours, but the ship has left Dubai, so clearly something must have happened to him. Edit: Thread title should be Royal Navy Seaman missing in Dubai! ...... its Friday!
