The family of missing charity worker Gareth Huntley have been told that Malaysian search experts have been working hard to ramp up their efforts, as international pressure translates into action on the ground.
Search teams have expanded their search zones and a unit of Commandos from the Malaysian army is scouring the higher, harder to reach areas of dense forest.
Gareth's family and friends on Tioman island have been asked to stay out of the jungle to allow professional search teams to work unhindered.
His mother, Janet Southwell, arrived on the island this morning. She said:
“We’re trying to stay positive while the search intensifies. I need to offer a huge collective hug to everyone who has supported the campaign."
The Twitter hashtag #findgareth has been tweeted thousands of times.
