RELATIVES of missing Karl Law have criticised police in Prague for not doing enough in the search for the father-of-one.

Family members on the hunt for the 34-year-old in the Czech capital say that while officers have helped put out posters, they are not joining them as they scour the streets searching for clues.

Lee Cross, 41, whose stag do Karl was on and who is due to get married in December, is pleading for officers to join and point out areas they don’t know well.

He told The News yesterday: ‘The police are not doing a lot, they could do more to help us.

‘No-one is taking us around the places we don’t know.

‘It’s literally just the four of us until 3am.

‘The police are helping in the normal way they help people, but they could do more and get someone out with us.

‘The British Embassy is doing everything it can.’

Mr Cross said at least 1,000 posters with Karl’s picture on had been distributed across the city and he has been into cafes, restaurants and bars in the hope someone has information.

‘We are walking up and down the river, we are just running out of ideas,’ he said.

‘It’s got so hard out here. We are walking the streets and praying that we get a bit of information.’

Mr Cross said the father’s fiancee and three-year-old son are desperate for him to return and he insists he’s not getting married unless Mr Law is found.

Prague police have already helped put out posters and the British Embassy is providing consular assistance, which has included appointing a case worker in London who is keeping the family informed of any new developments.

Family members have also appeared on Czech television, pleading for Karl to get in touch.

It has been revealed a stag do tour guide in Prague may have been the last person to see Karl before he disappeared, and the search party is eager to get in touch with them.

Milada Korbelova told The News she briefly talked to the dad-of-one from Fareham about his hat at a bar called Coyotes Prague.

Karl was on his own when they chatted at around midnight on Sunday.
