British backpacker, Amelia Bambridge from Worthing, West Sussex has gone missing in Cambodia after attending a beach party.
The family of the 21-year-old woman are traveling there to assist in the search for her.
Britain’s PA news agency reported that her mother was contacted by the manager of the Nest Beach Club hostel after she failed to check out. Her handbag containing her phone, wallet and bank cards was found on a nearby beach.
Amelia has been missing since the 23rd of October 2019. She was last seen at Police Beach, Koh Rong where she attended a party until around 3:30 am.
Her passport was still at the hostel where she was due to checkout on Saturday at noon.
Friends reported Amelia’s “out-of-character” disappearance after her belongings were found on a beach.
“People are diving. People are checking the jungles and the beaches,” Harris said.
“Police sent three search teams out, so they’re helping as well. It’s a whole island thing now. Everyone’s looking.”
Mr Harris told BBC that Koh Rong was “quite a small island” which someone could walk around in two or three hours.
“You might lose your friend after a night out but you’ll see them in 20 minutes or you might see them the next morning,” he said.
The backpacker’s brother Harry Bambridge also appealed for help in finding his sister.
The Lucie Blackman Trust, a charity that highlights the plight of missing or jailed British travelers abroad appealed for information about Amelia on Facebook.
The charity is asking for anyone with information about her whereabouts to call +44800 098 8485, or to email [email protected]
