Nasum frontman Mieszko Talarczyk is currently missing in Thailand.
Official statement from Nasum band members:
"It's very hard for us to make this announcement, but since rumours are already out on the Internet we must make an official statement: Mieszko Talarczyk is missing in Thailand.
Mieszko and his girlfriend went to Thailand to spend the holidays. They left a few days before Christmas and were scheduled to return right after New Years Eve.
They were staying in a bungalow at Phi Phi Island and when the big wave came and swept the bungalow away the two were seperated. Mieszko's girlfriend is being reported hospitalized "badly injured" but she has been in contact with among others Mieszko's sister who has been posting an "I'm looking for..." at the Phuket Disaster Forum.
This is everything we know right now. Since we are all shocked by this surreal situation we strongly advice fans of Nasum to respect the anxiety we and the Talarczyk and Thorén families feel at this time, and NOT post questions by email or in the guestbook at nasum.com. We will post all sorts of news on the website, but again, please respect our wish in this uneasy time.
Anders, Jon and Urban of Nasum.
Update: Nothing new to report
As of midnight Wednesday/Thursday we have nothing to report about the whereabouts of Mieszko. There are still lots of "good" possible scenarios that we prefere to think about instead of drawing negative conclusions. We suggest that you do the same.
We have some information about the condition of Mieszko's girlfriend. Her injuries are not lethal. She has broken one or both legs and gotten some lacerations. She is in a deep shock and we really hope that she will be on one of the airplanes returning to Sweden with injured people.
We would also like to say thanks to all the kind words and thoughts posted by people in the guestbook. This kind of support really helps us in the band to cope with this unreal situation. Thanks again!
Finally, to the people who have sent orders for merchandise: please respect that we can't really deal with your orders right now, at least not at once.
Anders, Jon and Urban of Nasum, along with ex-members Rickard Alriksson and Jesper Liveröd, as well as all of Mieszko's friends in Örebro and elsewhere."
