How did the moot LVS L1011-500 get from Bangkok all the way to the Laos border?

I have heard the distance is 630km (391 miles) and given Thailand's tight roads, it being towed all the way seems a bit funny. Was it actually towed? And how long did it take?

You mean it’s not just sitting in Bangkok as it was before?

I cannot find any info about any L-1011 being anywhere near the Laos border, therefor I think it's safe to assume it's not there.

I was able to find two L-1011s in Thailand, HS-AXA and HS-AXE. One is in Nakhon Pathom, some distance west of Bangkok towards the Myanmar border (but closer to Bangkok than to the border). It seems to be some kind of scrapyard. The other one is in the outskirts of Bangkok in what seems like an amusement park.

Do you have any source for this aircraft being near the Laos border?

It was N388LS

I don't have a "source", but here are pictures of it near the Laos Border:
