The last known footage of Lars Mittank shows him calmly walking around the airport before visiting the airport doctor's office. Accounts differ as to what actually went on in the doctor's office. The doctor himself says that Lars was agitated, and refused to take the medicine prescribed to him. Whatever the case, after his visit, a CCTV recording shows Lars sprinting from the airport and climbing over a fence into a sunflower field, never to be seen again.
between them. What we have next is the airport security cameras on the footage. You can see Lars calmly wandering around the airport with his backpack and his carry all the video is on Youtube and you can see that he does not look frantic, worried, anxious or anything else. He is carrying his carry all in one hand and what appears to be a cell phone in the other. At one point he has a brief conversation with what looks like an airport employee. She pointed in the direction of the airport. Doctor and Lars walked in that direction. It was around nine a.m. And LARS had been in the airport for over three hours. At that point there are no cameras in the doctor's office. Of course. So we have the doctors account for what happened next. Dr Kostov is the man who saw LArs. He said that LaRS seemed anxious and restless when he came into the office he was rubbing his hands together and fidgeting while he waited. We know he took largest temperature and he didn't have a fever. So we have to assume he did the rest of the vital signs. And if anything stood out it's not been reported. Dr Kostov did try to prescribe LARS some pain medication for his ear pain, but he said that LARS acted like he didn't really trust the doctor and he would not take the medication he left the physical pills on the table. Dr Kostov told LARS he could go ahead and fly home, but he needed to sign a waiver that would release the doctor from liability, which LARS readily signed. Now at this point we do have a spot where the stories divide a bit according to the family's investigation. LaRS continue to act nervous. He said he needed to use the bathroom and that's when he took off running out the door. They say that the clinics documentation from that day supports this sequence of events, but the version of events Dr Kostov gave is likely the one you're more familiar with. If you've heard the story before in this account while LARS was in the clinic, another man opened the office door where LaRS was in with the doctor. The person was a uniformed airport employee though he was a construction worker, the uniform could be interpreted as similar to security. When LARS saw the man, he was surprised he panicked and he started mumbling something about how he didn't want to die and he was in fear for his life. The doctor tried to calm him down explaining that the man was just an employee. But that's when LARS took off running, leaving both of his bags behind and that included his passport, his wallet and his cell phone. I have not seen an explanation for why a construction worker walked into a closed exam room. He was working on renovations in the airport, so maybe he wasn't aware of the room was in use. But the family doesn't believe this version of events happened anyway. So why the man went into a closed exam room doesn't matter because it never happened. They have said that a german investigator who was in varna was introduced to the airport employee who was supposedly the one who went into the doctor's office. But an investigation showed the man had not been to work that day. He wasn't even in the area on the day Lars disappeared. So the person offered up to the investigators as a witness hadn't been there according to the family. So why LARS bolted from the doctor's office. Maybe a huge question mark. What isn't in question is the fact that he bolted full tilt and ran out of the airport that much was captured on CCTV. The door to the doctor's office itself is in a blind spot, but that is the direction largely seen running from. He sprinted from the office to the door and right out of the airport. He slowed to a walk as he made his way across the parking lot, but then he started running or at least jogging again. When he hit a grassy area on the edge, he went past the reach of the cameras, but witnesses say they saw him climb the fence. This fence is 2 to 2.5 m high, which we're talking 6 to 8 feet and there was some security wire on the top like barbed wire. Since Lawrence was so athletic, he was able to scale the fence and then clear the top. On the other side of the fence was a field with six ft tall sunflowers. So, LARS was out of sight of these witnesses pretty quickly
