Karl Law, 34, went missing while on a stag night with his cousin and other friends and family last weekend.

Leanne Collins, the sister of Karl’s fiancé, Amanda, and the aunt of his three-year-old son, said last night the family is ‘really worried’ about him.

The 26-year-old said: ‘It is just heartbreaking because there has been no news.

‘Amanda has been really strong. I don’t know how she is holding it together.

‘Everything has been covered but I think the boys who are still out there have been really brave.’

Karl’s brother Craig and cousin Steve are still in the Czech Republic with two other family members searching for him.

Police in the capital city and the British Embassy have also stepped up their search. Family members yesterday appeared on Czech television, asking Karl to get in touch.

It has also emerged a stag do tour guide in Prague may have been the last person to see Karl before he disappeared.

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 morning.

She said: ‘I talked to him. We had a very short conversation about his hat as it is some special British mark or something.

‘I met him while pub crawling with my group of tourists at Coyotes bar Prague around midnight. It looked like he got lost or something. I’m not sure about this one, it is just my feeling that at the moment we met him he was already on his own.

‘It was just a conversation about nothing – I would never thought something like this can happen.’

Asked if she had ever heard of any other tourist go missing on a stag party in the city, she said: ‘I heard many stories of accidents, injuries, financial loss, but not complete disappearing of a person.’

Fareham MP Mark Hoban said: ‘Karl’s disappearance is worrying, and my thoughts are with his family and friends – this will be a tough time for all of them.

‘The family, Hampshire Police and Foreign Office staff are working with the Czech authorities to find Karl and we all pray for his safe return.’
