Young people "disappeared" in Britain, Albanians show the sacrifices they made to never return to their homeland

Young people "disappeared" in Britain, Albanians show the sacrifices

The British media DailyMail has discovered that the father of one of the 200 asylum-seeking teenagers missing from Home Office hotels has admitted last night that his son disappeared in order not to return to Albania.

"The 18-year-old talks to his father every day and is sending money he earns from working on a construction site in London to northern Albania, where British media have tracked him down."

However, Orgito Luka, who was 17 when he disappeared in May last year, is still officially considered missing. Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick told MPs last week that of the 4,600 unaccompanied child asylum seekers who arrived in the UK since 2021, 440 had disappeared and only half had returned.

"Of those still missing, 186 claimed to be either 16 or 17 years old and 176 are from Albania."

The Ministry of Health has revealed the names of around 12 Albanian teenagers who disappeared from HomeOffice-approved hotels last year, most of whom would soon turn 18.

"Some of the names do not appear in Albanian records, suggesting they may have given false details or mistakes have been made. Others appear to have active social media accounts showing expensive clothes, restaurants and luxury cars."
