Neighbor Nongnut Yee-leng, 40, said the apartment has been vacant for about two years. The previous tenant, she said, was a Thai man, about 40 years old, who had two daughters, ages 2 and 3 years.

She said the man was having financial problems and had heard that one daughter was ill. But she did not know what happened next, as the family suddenly disappeared.
