The family of a Cardiff-born soldier reported missing in the French Alps say they are hoping for news for him.

26-year-old Simon Daw, who is on leave from 1st Battalion the Royal Welsh, had been staying the ski resort Les Deux Alpes with friends. He last seen on Wednesday night.

"We are waiting for news, but we haven't heard anything yet" said his father Vincent.

"The information about Simon is out there and we are just waiting for any update. "All we can do is hope for the best."

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said it is aware a British national has been reported missing in France.

A spokeswoman said: "Consular staff are in contact with French police who are conducting a search. We stand ready to provide consular assistance."
