Here are two photos of Jean-Baptiste Talleu,
a French cycling from France to Asia.

He was regularly giving news to his parents, and they
can record his banking activity through the internet.

Since the 5th of December he didn't give any news.
He took a flight from Dubai to Mumbai (Bombay) the
4th December and effectively arrived as he withdrew
money from the bank this day in Mumbai. But since
then, nothing, no news, no mail, no withdrawal. We
worry a lot.

He intended to cycle towards the south of India, but
something might have happen to him and he could have
never left Bombay, the last place we presume he's
He travels with a Lonely Planet guide, which means he
probably goes through typical areas mentioned in the

He is 26 years old, measures 5ft10, 1,80m, long dark brown
curly hair, always tied, thin. Always wears beige,
brown, dark blue or black clothes, never colourful.

If you happen to live in the area, or go through
there while you travel, please look around and
display a poster with his pictures.
Here are the areas it is most likely to be helpful
displaying his missing poster:

  • Around Mumbai airport
  • Andheri Kurla Road (The last place we assume he was, to withdraw money)
  • Any area in Mumbai where tourists usually go for cheap hotel (Colaba)
  • Any touristic area where it is most likely travellers go by (Goa, Gokarna, Hampi, Kochi, Ooty, Mysore, Allepey, Munnar, Varkala)
  • Gateway of India, where tourists usually take a boat to cross the peninsula
  • If you go in any hotel or Guesthouse, please show his picture and ask
  • The region of Pune, in the ashrams where he could have ended up
