Fears are growing for a British tourist who has gone missing from a Swiss ski resort.
Myles Robinson, 23, was last seen outside the Blue Monkey bar in Wengen just after 2am on Tuesday when he escorted a friend to her hotel.

Myles with his sister, Carla

Last night his family, who were with him on holiday, spoke of their frantic search.

His sister Cara, 25, said: "We've heard absolutely nothing since then. It's a total mystery."

She said her family could think of no reason why he would suddenly disappear.

"He's been coming here for about 15 years. He knows the region, he knows the locals.

"He's a normal boy. He would never wander off."

The Swiss army has been called in to help with a helicopter search and teams using sniffer dogs and infra-red cameras have scoured the area.

Mr Robinson was wearing jeans, a white shirt, dark jumper and jacket when he was last seen.

Locals said it was a clear night when he vanished.

Mr Robinson was on holiday with his sister and parents Michael and Sarah, of Wandsworth, south-west London.

Mr Robinson said: "A body has not been found yet so we are trying to remain hopeful.

"We have held meetings in the town, put posters up and are just hoping he will be found."

Police searching for a British tourist who went missing in a Swiss ski resort have found the body of a man.

Myles Robinson, 23, disappeared after leaving the Blue Monkey bar in Wengen to take a friend to her hotel just after 0200 GMT on 22 December.

He had been staying at a nearby hotel with his family, from London.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said identification of the body found in Lauterbrunnen, near Wengen, on Monday afternoon had not yet taken place.

Posters had been put up around the town in an attempt to find Mr Robinson and the Swiss army was involved in the search for him.

The Newcastle University student and his family have been visiting the resort for 15 years, and his girlfriend was due to fly out to spend New Year with them.
