A huge appeal began on both sides of The Channel and his family went to France to try and find him.

While Mrs Salt was there he called home. She said: ‘My partner spoke to him but all Andrew said was that he was okay and would call in a few days. We’ve heard nothing since. In a way I’m relieved but I’m also still panicking. He wouldn’t even leave a number.
