Rev Hyeon Soo Lim, 60, of the Light Korean Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Canada arrived in North Korea at the end of January and went missing shortly afterwards.
He was involved in projects including orphanages, nursing homes and food projects from noodle plants to flour mills. Significantly, some of the food projects were linked to Jang Song-Thaek, the late uncle of North Korea's president Kim Jong-Un, via associates.
Jang was executed for treason in December 2012...
...Rev Chun Ki-Won, the director of Durihana, which helps North Korean refugees, told AFP, "As far as I know, he was asked by officials to come to Pyongyang on January 31 before he went incommunicado. We're worried the invitation to Pyongyang was somehow related to his ties to Jang."
