More feared missing in Nepal have made contact with relatives

Nora Arscott, 77, from Somerset but believed to be living in Devon has made contact with her family after she was listed as missing on the International Committee of the Red Cross website.

Gary Williams, from Plymouth, listed as missing in Nepal is safe and well. The travel tour company he was with have said all of his party are out of harms way.

After a tense and anxious couple of days it was with great relief that we finally had positive confirmation that John and his trekking party were safe. It was a quick 10 second call from a sat phone.

Fortunately they were out of Kathmandu when the quake struck. We will probably not hear anything new for a couple of days.

We will be informing family and friends first on their progress. We will however keep this page updated thereafter. Many thanks for the emails and texts.
