"The last time he was spotted was when he left his hotel in New York. He was wearing a dark jacket and a white shirt. He is 85 years old, has difficulty staying up for a long time, speaks little and loves the intercontinental hotel in Geneva," the activists said in an urgent Facebook post.

Cameroonian activists took to Facebook on Tuesday to beg anyone who might have seen their "missing" President to urgently inform them about his whereabouts.

"The last time he was spotted was when he left his hotel in New York. He was wearing a dark jacket and a white shirt. He is 85 years old, has difficulty staying up for a long time, speaks little and loves the intercontinental hotel in Geneva," the activists said in an urgent Facebook post.

"We beg anyone who knows his whereabouts to get in touch with Charles Ndongo and Marie Claire Nana," they added.
85-year old President Paul Biya of Cameroon, who has been in power for 35 years, has not returned home since the United Nations General Assembly ended in New York about 23 days ago.

He was said to have traveled to Europe for one of his numerous vacations or private stays and has not been spotted in public ever since. Mr. Biya regularly takes long vacations and private stays in Europe without handing power to anyone. His supporters say the constitution does not compel him from handing power when he is away.

It, however says, when he is incapacitated he should hand over power, but there is no formal body to declare him incapacitated.

Activist Boris Bertolt, a Cameroonian, who launched the search warrant on Tuesday, said he was speaking on behalf of Cameroonians concerned that the country had been abandoned by an old man too old to change.

"Search Notice with high reward," the search notice he posted on Facebook said.
Mr. Bertolt told the international community that more than 23 days after "Paul barthélémy biya bi mvondo" was yet to return home.

"The Cameroon family wishes to stress that it is concerned about the absence of their son in the context of family fights for his inheritance. However, he also said that if he no longer wished to return home, the elders would be willing to offer him whatever he needs for his development.

"Including his lovely wife and children Brenda and junior. Members of the family would also be prepared to contact him for financial arrangements. His price is ours. A family doesn't throw water from the bath with the child. Despite his stubbornness, he remains our son.

"The Cameroon family reports that it will hold the swiss government responsible for anything that could happen to their child for non-assistance to a family at risk.

"On behalf of the family: Boris Bertolt," the activists wrote.
