Egypt's foreign ministry is closely following up on the developments in the investigation by Italian authorities into the disappearance of an Egyptian citizen in Milan earlier this month, the ministry announced on Thursday.

The Egyptian consulate in Milan is following up on the case of the 1 August disappearance of Egyptian national Abdo Ibrahim Akl, according to a statement by foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid.

Abu Zeid added that the Egyptian consul in Milan met with Akl's son and brother on 9 August to update them on the latest developments in the cooperation with Rome.

Akl, who lived in Italy since 1992, had been working at the Carparelli shipping and loading company since 1994.

The statement added that information so far indicates that Akl had a disagreement with the son of the company’s owner.

An estimated 250,000 Egyptians live in Italy.
