The Royal Navy have said they are doing all they can to locate missing Leading Seaman Timothy MacColl. MacColl has not been seen since the early hours of Sunday morning. He is the father of two children aged four and six. His pregnant wife said:

"We are appealing to the people of Dubai and reaching out to the large expat community to help us find Timmy. We are desperately worried. Checks have been made with hospitals, prisons, police stations, medical stations and mortuaries and there is no record of him and no sightings so far."

His family described him as white, 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build, with short brown hair cropped with a flicked fringe. He speaks with a broad Scottish accent and was wearing a red Moto GP T-shirt, dark-coloured long shorts, and white trainers.
