Meng's wife contacted police in Lyon, the French city where the worldwide police agency is based, after not hearing from him since September 25, and after receiving threats by phone and on social media, the ministry said. An investigation into Meng Hongwei's disappearance was launched on October 5, 2018 according to a source close to the case.
French authorities said Meng boarded a plane and arrived in China but his whereabouts are unknown.
At the same time, Beijing hailed the appointment of Meng Hongwei, the vice-minister of public security, as the country's coming of age on the global stage as a law enforcement power.
According to BBC Asia Editor Celia Hatton, Meng Hongwei's disappearance seems to fit in with a now familiar pattern among China's senior Communist Party officials.
"France is puzzled about the situation of Interpol's president and concerned about the threats made to his wife", the French interior ministry was quoted by BBC as saying.
The South China Morning Post, a Hong Kong newspaper, has suggested that Mr Meng may have been the latest target of an ongoing campaign against corruption in China. Because Interpol's secretary general is responsible for the day-to-day running of the agency's operations, Meng's absence may have little operational effect. The newspaper said last week that Meng had been "taken away" for questioning by what it said were "discipline authorities".
"He did not disappear in France", a source close to the inquiry told AFP. The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the party's secretive internal investigation agency, had no announcements on its website about Meng and could not be reached for comment. His wife has since reported him missing. "Yellow notices" are issued for missing persons.
Meng, who is China's vice minister for public security and a former head of Interpol China, was elected president of Interpol in November 2016.
The 36-year-old took to China's Twitter-like Weibo to acknowledge her wrongs, beg for her supporters" forgiveness, and apologise to "society, the friends who care about me, the public and the national tax authorities'. "It is quite possible that Meng found himself on the wrong side of the political divide in China, at a time when President Xi Jinping is intensifying his crackdown on corruption".
