THE family of a missing man say they are doing everything they can to find him.

Karl Law, from Fareham, was last seen in Prague at around midnight on Saturday.

The 34-year-old builder was with a group of 13 people on his cousin’s stag do in the Czech Republic.

Members of the group split up as some headed to the Maxim Bar in Old Town Square.

His brother Craig, 30, said it was around 3am when the group in the bar returned to their hotel and realised the dad of one was missing.

Craig, who is still in Prague, said: ‘We went to the police station in the morning and reported it over here.

‘My brother is really not like this, he’s got a family and a little boy at home. He’s family-oriented, he’s got his head screwed on.

‘We don’t know what to do – we’re not going to leave.’

Mr Law, pictured on the night he went missing, did not have his passport with him but had around £100 and 2,500 Koruna – around £70 – on him.

His disappearance meant he missed his three-year-old son’s birthday yesterday.

The group flew back on Sunday but his brother and cousin have remained in Prague searching for any trace of their relative.

They have visited all local hospitals and put up posters.

Mr Law added: ‘There’s no sign of him. He hasn’t got a phone on him.’

He reported his brother missing to local police but was told they would wait 24 hours before launching an investigation.

Police forces across the globe have similar policies.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: ‘We are aware of a British national reported missing in Prague and are providing consular assistance to the family.’

On the night he went missing Karl was wearing grey non-baggy jeans, canvas shoes with white laces and a grey long-sleeved shirt.
