    China - Hilary St John Bower, 60, Lo Wu, 21 March 2016 *Arrests*

    Hilary St John Bower, 60, a Hong Kong resident and British national, disappeared after crossing the Lo Wu border on March 22. He was on his way to his home in Shenzhen to see his girlfriend and six-year-old son.

    The Hong Kong Police said Tsim Sha Tsui Police Station received a report on March 30 from a woman “that her 60-year-old boyfriend went missing after he was last seen on March 21”.

    Friends and family fear his disappearance could be tied to a HK$9 million windfall he was expecting for the sale of a mainland property.

    A British lecturer in Hong Kong who was looking forward to enjoying retirement with his six-year-old son and a windfall from a lucrative property deal has been found murdered in mainland China...

    Police said they believe Mr Bower was murdered on the evening of his disappearence, soon after crossing the border into mainland China just after 5pm.

    Bower's girlfriend and two men arrested for murder. I reads like it is a different girlfriend than the mother of his son:
