I read most of this thread.
Tourist don't just disappear in Santo Domingo and 14 days
is bit longer than your typical weekend bender. If I were looking
for this guy I'd start by questioning the cab drivers and the moto
conchos hanging around the casino on that day along with which
hookers were hanging around. Something will shake out.
Either way. dude has been missing for roughly two weeks, not gonna
end well.

IMO someone coming from Iceland is coming for something/someone. Like CR said, a tourist does not just disappear. Who were they with, where did they go...I am sure for the family this is hard, but something happened.

Of course they "disappear". "Disappear" in the mafia sense of the word. Look what happened to this guy Daryl Fornicova in Cabarete some years back. They even hired NYC PI Bo Dietl to investigate his "Disappearance"

Agreed. Let’s not forget the couple who had that accident on way to airport. She was unconscious in a trauma unit, and he was dead in the car submerged in the sea. So many things may have happened to him. No credit card use all this time is a bad sign.

So...
Where he stayed while in the D.R. doesn't seem to be too much of an issue any more.
He made it to the airport...allegedly.
But...
"He is registered with Interpol, where he is reported missing," says Rannveig.
Combined with the headline...Icelander Wanted in the Dominican Republic.
Does that mean he was on some sort of Interpol list before he was reported missing by his family?
Or is he listed solely by virtue of his present disappearance?
Thus, he has struggled with a mental illness that can impair his judgement.

Those two issues combined could make for a bit of a dangerous cocktail.
In my opinion,
That article (CFA123's #26) raises more questions than it answers.
Perhaps it is in the translation?

I was wondering about the interpool thing to. I didn’t know it was used for missing persons.

even in the nitty gritty city of S.D this is unusual. Getting robbed and assaulted has a much higher occurrence rate. Disappearing requires a level of participation. Like association with questionable characters and/or being involved in shady sheet.

If requested by the Icelandic government, and that is the key, Interpol can issue what is referred to as a "yellow" missing persons notice.

A "red" notice would indicate a criminal request.

Ok. That makes sense then. I didn’t know that.

A lot of people disappear every year in SD without counting those with dubious connections. They appear in the newspaper every few weeks. Simply normal people that leave home one day and that's that. This is not new as you will see such articles in Dominican newspapers from the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's, etc despite SD was much smaller back then in size and in population.

What hardly happens is for a tourist to disappear, almost all the others I'm referring to were Dominicans.

Have they Checked with Pizza Delivery Drivers , and the Tony Montana Moto guys ?
Cuz this guy could easily be hiding in Boca Chica ....
And youz cant say it has not happened before ...Especially if you factor in the " he's not taking his Meds" component .

If he missed his flight, he could have easily chosen to spend the night in BC rather than going back to the CZ.

Lets hope it just went bad with his Online Novia, and he then discovered The Party town of Boca Chica ..
Its a very likely scenario. People dont just disappear, unless Like we all speculate he had serious problems back home..

I Missed my flight home at least 4 times .. just did not want to leave .. Changed the flights , paid a fee, , had to re arrange my vacation time,
it happens .. but 2 weeks is a long time ( unless he had no Job of any kind back home to go back to ) .. Hoping he is found alive and well
