The search for a 23-year-old British man who went missing from a Swiss ski resort has continued, with police scouring the hotel where he and his family were staying.

Myles Robinson has not been seen since the early hours of Tuesday, when he walked a family friend home from the Blue Monkey bar in Wengen.

The pair sat down for half an hour outside her hotel, Mr Robinson's father Michael said, before she went inside.

It was only a few hundred yards from Hotel Eiger where the family are spending their holiday.

Michael Robinson said: "The police have been very good, we've just had an hour's session with them at our hotel. They have completely searched the hotel we're staying at, they had a sniffer dog here for the third time.

"We had a TV interview and there are posters all around, we are literally trying everything we can."

He also gave an interview to a Swiss newspaper.

Myles, who went to Newcastle University and Charterhouse school, was wearing blue jeans, a white shirt, a dark sweater and a dark jacket when he went missing.

Police and the Swiss army carried out helicopter searches of the area in the wake of his disappearance but nothing was found.

The Robinsons have been going to Wengen for 15 years.
