Retired High Court judge missing in Lantau

Retired High Court judge John James Rhind is missing after leaving his Pui O apartment on Lantau Island.

Rhind, 80, was wearing a dark jacket over a brown shirt, gray pants and hiking boots when he was last seen on Tuesday, Apple Daily reports.

His wife said Rhind is familiar with the neighborhood where he takes his dog for walks and keeps in contact with her whenever he is out.

She said she is worried about his disappearance.

Rhind, who began his Hong Kong law practice in 1965, served as a High Court justice from 1980 until his retirement in 1994.

He is about 1.85 meters and 84 kilograms, of medium build and fair complexion.
