It is up to the Greek police to ask Interpol to put him on the list of missing persons, but this has not happened yet.

The Foreign Office is now being urged to get involved.


Cumbria Police "in contact with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office"

Cumbria Police have released a statement about their continued efforts to help the family of a man from Kendal who went missing while on holiday in Greece.

"Cumbria Constabulary are providing Family Liaison support to Mr Bainbridge's relatives in the UK.

“The investigations on-going in Anti Paxos are within the jurisdiction of the Authorities in Greece.

“However, Cumbria Constabulary are in contact with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Interpol and will provide any assistance required should a request be received."
