The family of missing Derbyshire hiker, Thomas Jagger, who has gone missing while on a trip to Peru, say they want to be left alone to 'grieve privately.'
Thomas was reported missing to the Foreign Office on 27th July after reports he went on a walk in mountains in the Ancash region of Peru alone. The Foreign Office released a statement on behalf of the family and a close friend of Mr Jagger:
This is a sad time for both families. Tom was a much-loved son, brother and friend and we wish to be given time to come to terms with what has happened. This difficult period is not being helped by speculative and untruthful reports appearing in the tabloid media. We would like to be left alone to grieve privately."
