A Canadian schoolteacher who has become the world's most wanted suspected pedophile was believed to be hiding in northeastern Thailand, aided by a Thai friend who used to arrange his sexual liaisons with young boys, police said Friday. Police teams rushed to the northeastern province Thursday night after receiving what they believed to be credible information that 32-year-old Christopher Paul Neil had fled to the area, police Maj. Gen. Wimol Powintara told The Associated Press. "We've sent teams in after him, and I believe we're closing in," Wimol said, asking that the name of the province not be disclosed but noting that it was one of the poorest in Thailand. Thai authorities issued an arrest warrant Thursday for Neil after determining that he may have sexually abused boys in Thailand, in addition to the dozen Cambodian and Vietnamese boys, some as young as 6, whom Interpol suspects he abused.
