Al-Harbi explained that the family decided that Salem return home with his mother because there were no more than two seats available in the plane that was supposed to take them back. Shortly after arriving at the airport, Salem’s mother started the travel procedures and was later surprised by the disappearance of her son.

The family of the missing young man informed the Turkish police about their son’s disappearance and requested access to the airport cameras’ records.
