Missing Briton found, admitted to HUKM

PETALING JAYA: Missing Briton Jonathan Kemp, who went missing after leaving his hotel room in Bukit Bintang after a row with his wife last Friday, has been found.

It is believed that the 28-year-old Briton was found in Salak South at about 3.30pm Saturday, but police only managed to determine his whereabouts on Sunday.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said Kemp was sent to the Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) for treatment, but did not reveal the reason behind his admission.

He said he was believed to have been found in an inebriated state.

An employee with the hotel said that Kemp and his wife, Alyson Jackson, 24, were reunited at the hospital.

The newlyweds, married for about a week, arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday and were supposed to go to Bali, Indonesia on Monday.

Kemp was said to have stormed out of the hotel after an argument at about 11pm on Friday.

Jackson said he was "acting strangely" before rushing out of the hotel.

She lodged a missing persons report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters a few hours later.
