Cambodian soldiers, divers scour island for missing British backpacker Amelia Bambridge

21-year-old was last seen at beach party on island of Koh Rong at 3am on Thursday.

More than 140 people took part in the search for a British backpacker who went missing in Cambodia, as her parents arrived in the Southeast Asian country on Sunday.

Local volunteers joined expats, tourists and nearly 200 members of the army, navy and police in searching for 21-year-old Amelia Bambridge, who was last seen at a beach party on the island of Koh Rong. Three government boats aided the sea search, while people scoured terrain on foot and motorcycles.

“Divers are searching in the sea around Koh Rong while the others are scanning the jungle,” said Kheang Phearun, a spokesman for the Preah Sihanouk provincial administration.
