AGENCIES in the United Kingdom say they are continuing to do all they can to find Karl Law.

Family members of the missing 34-year-old have once again criticised police in Prague, where he disappeared while on a stag-do on Sunday, November 16.

Relatives have now hired the services of a private investigator to help with their search in the Czech capital. They are concentrating on a district of the city where there have been two sightings of Mr Law – one in a cafe and the other at a crossing near a bridge. The dad-of-one, from Fareham, disappeared on a night out in Prague at around midnight last Sunday and has not been heard from since. He was out without a mobile phone or bank card, but was carrying cash.

Police and the British Embassy have been supporting Mr Law’s family and working with Czech police for a week now.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said: ‘We are supporting the family of Karl Law, and helping to arrange communications with other agencies.’

Lee Cross, who was the stag and has vowed not to get married until his cousin Karl is found, flew back to England on Friday but was planning to return to Prague tonight.

He said: ‘The police (in Prague) could do a bit more for us.

‘Maybe not so much the police here – the police here (in Hampshire) have been doing a lot for us. The local police have been phoning us and checking how things are going every day.

‘The Prague police, I would not say they have helped us at all.

‘The general public in Fareham have been amazing. He has got so many friends and family here raising money, it’s unbelievable.’

A website has now been set up in English and in Czech with details of Karl’s disappearance and how to contact his family and police, while new posters have been put up around Prague.

The site,, details the circumstances around Karl’s disappearance, a gallery of photos, and contact details for police in Prague.

- Another fundraising event is being held this evening at The Hoeford Inn in Gosport Road, Fareham. A race night will be held from 7.30pm, with all proceeds being given to Karl’s family who are still searching for him.
