Parents of missing British backpacker arrive in Cambodia

More than 140 people took part in the search for Amelia Bambridge, the 21-year-old British backpacker last seen at a beach party on the Cambodian island of Koh Rong, as her parents arrived in the south-east Asian country on Sunday.

Local volunteers joined expats, tourists and Cambodian officials including police officers, divers and soldiers in searching for Bambridge. Three government boats aided the sea search, while people scoured terrain on foot and motorbikes.

Linda Schultes, Bambridge’s mother, arrived in Cambodia from the UK and is expected to land on Koh Rong on Monday morning. Her father, Phil Bambridge, arrived on the island after travelling from Vietnam, where he lives, on Sunday night.
