Mysteries of the missing hikers

City Talk | 30 Aug 2016

In September 2005, an off-duty police officer got lost and called 999 for help.

The conversation was mysteriously halted and rescuers were sent but until today he is still missing.

One month later, four mountain hikers embarked on an unforgettable journey, an experienced Boy Scout leader and three women, in Sai Kung for a youth project test.

The journey began at Cheung Shan (part of Maclehose Trail section 3) and went through Shek Uk Shan, Nam Shan Yung and Pak Sha O.

Near where the off-duty policeman went missing, they took a rest. The 23-year-old man felt sick and needed a rest. He asked the three women to go on ahead. Two days later, police found his body.

In 2009, a bus driver on a mountain hike went missing in Sai Kung. His family called his cellphone and a fisherman answered the phone and said that he found a bag and cellphone and took out the SIM card to use. The bus driver was nowhere to be found.

In 2011 a person called 999 for help near Pak Tam and the conversation was mysteriously halted.

He was nowhere to be found either. A police appeal for information on the missing man in 2012 indicated he was believed to be traveling to a country area of Sai Kung. All these missing persons have some common ground: they were in the far northeast of Sai Kung.

These are a few of the many examples of people who mysteriously went missing in Sai Kung near Wong Tei Tung, Sham Chung and Shek Uk Shan. Does this ring a bell? A few weeks ago, we mentioned a settlement as early as 30,000 years ago was found in thick bush in a hill in remote Sai Kung.

Here's the feng shui angle. Places like this would easily fall into an imbalance between yin and yang, ancient places where significant life events have happened and where the cycles of decay and formation have occurred.

They could result in yin energies taking charge if the cleansing process had not been properly done.

This point can be explained easily, as when a house in not renovated, it will suffer wear and tear, Then bad and yin energies would certainly prevail and take charge.

I have so many friends living in Sai Kung and I drive to Sai Kung every week. Sai Kung covers a big area and this is not meant to represent Sai Kung as unsafe.
