Speculation over fate of missing Dutchman linked to WikiLeaks | The Guardian - Sept. 14, 2018 |

Police said they were "holding all possibilities open in respect to what might have happened" to Kamphuis and pursuing three distinct lines of inquiry: a "voluntary disappearance" including a possible suicide; an accident; or foul play.

Police have denied any connection between Kamphuis's disappearance and the fact that Bodø houses a Norwegian military airbase, and that buried deep inside a nearby mountain is a major part of the Scandinavian country's secret cyber defence operations.

With an internet campaign using the hashtag #FindArjen to locate him, unconfirmed sightings of Kamphuis have also been reported in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and several parts of Norway.

"I hate how overblown Arjen's Wikileaks connection is becoming," said one, Ancilla van der Leest. "He advised many parties and journalistic organisations on infosecurity. In this light he was also a `Reuters associate'."

Dutch media have reported that the Dutchman helped some Wikileaks members with advice on avoiding cybersnooping and government surveillance, the subject of a book he co-wrote with Silkie Carlo, but it is unclear how often or regularly he worked with the site.

There are also unconfirmed reports that he visited Assange in Ecuador's London embassy, where the Australian is living because he fears extradition to the US if he leaves the building.
