Cameroon team manager Victor Agbor Nso told the country's state broadcaster it was unfortunate for the country and its worldwide image.

Games officials said race walker Irfan Kolothum Thodi and triple jumper Rakesh Babu were found to have a syringe in their room in the athletes' village on the Gold Coast.

The missing athletes are weightlifters Olivier Matam Matam, Arcangeline Fouodji Sonkbou and Petit Minkoumba, and boxers Christian Ndzie Tsoye, Simplice Fotsala, Arsene Fokou, Ulrich Yombo and Christelle Ndiang.

The disappearance comes just hours after Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton warned that athletes who breach their visa conditions would be tracked down, locked up and deported.

Five of the missing athletes are boxers, while three are weightlifters.

Commonwealth Games organisers called for competitors to respect the law, mindful of the fact that more than 100 athletes overstayed their visas at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Cr Dobie said there was no indication they were unhappy and "they were great ambassadors for their country, there was no indication at any time that there was an issue with individuals".
