According to witnesses Hochhuth was last seen on Sunday evening in a cafe in the centre of Dubrovnik, before being seperated from his companion at around 3.30am. Witnessess say he had been drinking. Hochhuth was scheduled to play the poker tournament the following day with 400 other players but he never showed up, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.
