Aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said it was concerned about an aid worker who went missing in Chad after a robbery last week and confirmed the safe return of another of its staff.
MSF said two of its workers in Chad, identified as one international and one local worker, were missing after the attack at one of its compounds in Ade in the east of the country, Reuters reports.
“While the Chadian colleague returned safely on Friday, MSF is deeply concerned that one international staff member is still missing,” the aid group said in a statement last week.
MSF said it has received confirmation from different sources in Chad and Sudan that the missing person was being held by an unknown armed group, but that the aid worker was in good health and was being treated well.
The aid group is in contact with the family of the staff member and with local, national and international authorities.
