An Egyptian employee of U.S. oil services giant Baker Hughes Inc. has been missing for more than 10 days since taking part in anti-government protests, his family told AFP Tuesday.

Tarek Abdel Latif hasn’t been seen or heard from since Jan. 28 after joining protests demanding the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year-rule.

“We have not heard from him since that Friday. We have looked everywhere, in hospitals, police stations, we’ve asked everyone. Nothing,” his brother Khaled Abdel Latif said.

He was last reported seen by friends Jan. 28 evening in Tahrir Square, the focal point of anti-regime protests that have rocked the Arab world’s most populous nation.

“Some people told us he is being held at state security headquarters in Cairo. We went and they turned us away saying no one was being held there,” Abdel Latif said.
