Help: Missing Person in Moscow (Updated)

Update: Body of a young man believed to be Nicolas Lazareff found north of Moscow

Moscow police are searching for a 22-year-old French-British man who was last seen in the early hours of Thursday morning in the north of the city, within a 15 minute radius (by car) of Medvedkovo Metro. 

Nicolas Lazareff was with his brother and a friend when they left Crazy Daisy bar on Turgenevskaya Ploshchad at around 4 a.m. 

They then got into a car with two unknown men and were taken to the north of Moscow before reportedly being robbed and left in a layby. 

Nicolas is 185 cm tall of stocky build, with blonde hair and light blue eyes (with a brown speck in one eye). He was wearing a long brown coat with a white fur-lined collar (pictured). If you have any information please contact the Moscow Police or call +7 (962) 994 41 08.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
