The family of Domen Simonic is becoming increasingly concerned about the 20 year-old student’s whereabouts


Concern is growing for the welfare of a second year London law student who has been missing since last Wednesday, after he took a trip to Slovenia during his university’s reading week.

Domen Simonic (pictured above), a 20 year-old law student at Queen Mary University of London, has been missing in Slovenia since the early hours of Wednesday morning, having travelled out there to visit his family and friends. Two boys of a similar age have reportedly gone missing from the same area, though the local police have been unable to connect these disappearances to that of the law undergrad.

According to his father, Ervin Simonic, the aspiring lawyer went to a concert in Maribor, Slovenia. After midnight, he left his friends and no one has seen him since.

Speaking to The Tab, a close family friend explained that:

His mother’s hopes are not very high at all, since last year about three or four people went missing in Maribor, and their bodies were all found later in the river.

The case has reportedly generated intense local news coverage.

A gofundme page has now been set up by a close friend of Simonic’s mother for extra help in the search effort. The page unfortunately reported that, as of last night, the student has still not been found. A Facebook page has also been created.

If anybody has any information about Simonic’s whereabouts, or any information at all, please contact find.domen@gmail.com.
