Cornish backpacker safe and well
Andaman Islands
The Andaman Islands are part of India
A man from Cornwall who was missing after the Asian earthquake has been found safe and well.

Ian and Ute Hendry who live near Bodmin, received a telephone call on Tuesday morning to say that their son Kai was alive.

He had been on the Andaman Islands - a remote archipelago which was near the epicentre of the earthquake.

The 26-year-old was spending a year backpacking after finishing a masters degree in computer science.

His family had last heard from him when he left Madras in India to travel by boat to the Andaman Islands on 19 December.
