Karm Gilespie was arrested at the Hong Kong airport in December 2013 with more than 7.5 kg of methamphetamine in his luggage.

“It is not a coincidence,” they said.

Mr. Gilespie’s friends desperately tried to contact him in the years after his disappearance and were surprised to learn of his charges, as his detention in China had not been made public until Wednesday.
