The duo told the police that they had left their compatriot in a remote region of Dubai, but could not lead the police to the exact spot as they were too drunk to remember.
The police learnt that they had travelled with Nasser to Ajman, Al Dhaid and Al Munai among other places.
The police and Naseer's family are urging the public to contact the authorities if they have any information on the missing man who suffers from diabetes.
