Australian man missing, feared arrested in North Korea

An Australian man is reportedly missing, following his arrest in North Korea.

Alek Sigley was reportedly arrested in Pyong Yang, where he lived as the only Australian in North Korea.

There are now fears for the Australian national, given that no one has seen or heard from him.


The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is reportedly providing consular assistance to his family.

Sigley is the founder of a tourism travel company, and runs several social media accounts about his life in North Korea.

He last posted to his twitter account on Monday.
