Police interrogated a 34-year-old unemployed man on Monday in connection with the disappearance in June of a company worker in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, officials said.

The man, a resident of Sumida Ward, Tokyo, whose name is being withheld, allegedly used bank cards belonging to Nobuyuki Murakami, a 50-year-old employee of a Tokyo stationery maker, to withdraw 1.3 million shortly after he went missing June 24, the officials said.
