The mother of a British man who has gone missing in the Malaysian jungle has called on the authorities to do more to search for him.
Gareth Huntley, 34, from London, has not been seen since he went on a trek to visit a waterfall in Tioman Island, off the south eastern coast of the country's mainland, on Tuesday morning.
He told friends at the headquarters of a nearby charity project where he was volunteering that he would return by 2pm the same day but failed to come back.
His mother, Janet Southwell, said: "At this stage I feel it is essential that the search be intensified as time is running out for Gareth, so I would really appreciate the support of the Malaysian authorities and the UK government with this."
