(CNN)The agent of Ghanaian soccer star Christian Atsu says the player's whereabouts are still not known, reversing course just a few days after telling CNN Sport that the Hatayspor winger was rescued from rubble after being caught in the earthquakes that struck southern Turkey.
"I am currently in Istanbul. The situation remains the same, Christian Atsu is yet to be found. Unless I see Christian, or speak with him, I have no further updates," Nana Sechere said on social media on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Sechere tweeted that it had come to light, contrary to prior reports, that Atsu was still missing.
"Following yesterday's (Tuesday's) update from the club that Christian had been pulled out alive, we are yet to confirm Christian's whereabouts. As you can imagine, this continues to be a devastating time for his family and we are doing everything we can to locate Christian," he said.
Sechere had originally told CNN on Tuesday that he had "official confirmation" from Hatayspor that Atsu "was in hospital and that he is stable."
In a WhatsApp message to CNN on Thursday, Sechere said that "every update that I have provided has come from my communications with the club, the British Consulate in Istanbul, the Ghana Consulate, The Ministry of Health, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Turkish Football Federation.
