Five Cameroonian athletes have gone missing in Australia the state-owned Cameroon Radio Television reported on Tuesday.

Two Indian athletes were banned from the Commonwealth Games on Friday and ordered to leave Australia "on the first flight available" after needles were discovered in their room at the athletes village.

"They left our region as a team to go and compete in the Commonwealth Games".

The athletes - Fotsala Simplice, Fokou Arsene, Ndzie Tchoyi Christian, Yombo Ulrich, Ndiang Christelle, Minkoumba Petit David, Fouodji Arcangeline Sonkbou and Matam Matam Olivier Heracles - left the designated competitors' village on the Gold Coast this week.

"The Chairman of this athletes ... are both equally unreliable and elusive", Martin told reporters.

"These athletes. were part of a team that had a training camp in Warwick before getting to (the) Gold Coast", he said in a statement.

The trio have been issued a strong reprimand by Games officials and warned they could lose their accreditation if any other members of the Indian team are issued infractions.

He said they were "taking the mickey".

Molombe expressed sadness following the disappearance of the eight athletes.

"When an athlete comes to Australia to compete in a competition we expect them to front up on the field and compete, so we are disappointed about that".

"This happens at every games, it's no surprise. if there is a breach (of visa) Peter Dutton and his team will deal with it", Beattie said.

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

"These are worldwide athletes who have very strict training programs and they undertook their training as was expected", Cr Dobie said. "It's very, very disappointing and very, very embarrassing for Cameroon", adding he "doesn't think they'll come back".

Mr Molombe said the incident was very worrying.

Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said that the Cameroonian athletes are within their visas and "have the right to travel freely". Following the 2012 London Olympics, at least 21 athletes were reported missing, including seven from Cameroon, and four from the DRC, as well as nationals of Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire, Sudan and Ethiopia.
