Team Cameroon's Chef de Mission, Victor Agbor Nso said the Cameroon team has filed an official complaint with Australian police.

Molombe expressed sadness following the disappearance of the eight athletes.

"These athletes are guests here in Australia at this time, they're still within their visas, they have the right to travel freely", he said.

"Although they have valid visas until mid-May. we are concerned because they haven't turned up for events when they are the reason they are here", he told Macquarie Media radio on Thursday.

Cameroon still has athletes scheduled to compete in track and field, wrestling and boxing before Sunday's closing ceremony.

Mr Molombe said the incident was very worrying.

Prominent barrister Julian Burnside said the athletes' visas could in theory include terms that they have to be present at the Games Village every day.

The development echoes a similar situation involving the Cameroon team at the 2012 Olympics in London, where seven athletes from the African nation went missing.
