For some reason, the reclusive Google founders are in Singapore

Found ‘em.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google’s co-founders and captains of its parent Alphabet, can be difficult men to find.

Here they are. The pair are on a maiden voyage to Singapore to discuss infrastructure and engineering force, per Today Online, a publication in the city-state.

A Google rep confirmed that the execs are there, but declined to say why. Sheer guess: Singapore is big on applying tech (and private funds) to transit, a particular obsession of Page’s. The founders spend some of their time on Google affairs but largely devote their days to incubating the nascent other parts of the Alphabet — although the exact details of their itineraries are very hard to determine.

They are likely en route from Sicily, where Alphabet/Google top brass hosted its annual exclusive invite-only “Camp,” reportedly featuring magician David Blaine.

With them in the photo is Singapore’s deputy prime minister and Caesar Sengupta, who leads Google’s “next billion user” unit, its Singapore-based hub for plotting growth across emerging markets.
