Other foreigners who are allegedly involved in this case are people who like to use this kind of service and who relevant police agencies are still tracking down.
The names of those wanted were not released by the Thai police but they stated to the Thai media that they were working on locating all three suspects and cooperating with the country where they believed the Swiss man had fled, hoping to capture and extradite the man for legal proceedings.
