Missing man's son: 'the doors closed, he was gone'

Ciprian Belea, the son of a man who's gone missing after becoming separated from him at Stockwell tube station, has told our Senior Correspondent Ronke Phillips what happened.

He said he had boarded a tube train but the doors had shut before his father had time to join him.

He said he made a gesture to tell his father to stay put, but he doesn't think he understood, because when he returned to the platform, he wasn't there.

Vasile Belea hasn't been seen since Tuesday.
