Two brothers whose parents are missing after the Indian Ocean tsunami in Thailand are to fly back to the UK.
Louis and Theo Barratt Mullan made a hospital appeal
Louis Barratt Mullan, 16, and his brother Theo, 12, were on a Takua Pa beach in when waves hit on Boxing Day.
Their parents, Leonard Barratt, 49, and Catherine Mullan, 53, from Grampound Road, near Truro, Cornwall, are missing presumed dead.
The boys will travel to Nottingham on Saturday to live with their grandmother Helen Mullan, 84, for the time being.
The boys were on the beach at Takua Pa near Phuket when the deadly tidal waves struck, but they were not seriously hurt.
They later pinned a note to the door of a Thai hospital appealing for news of their missing mother and father.
The boys' aunt Joy has flown to Bangkok to meet Louis and Theo, who have been staying with a family arranged by the British Embassy.
Phillo Mullan, the missing woman's sister, said that the brothers were "doing remarkably well".
She said: "They were obviously relieved to see their aunt and are looking forward to coming back to Nottingham.
Leonard Barratt and Catherine Mullan: Missing
"They have been well looked after by the embassy, which arranged for a local family to look after them.
"They are doing very well. I think Louis is rallying round for Theo."
Louis described the tsunami as "like a giant washing machine" in a telephone call from Thailand to reassure his grandmother he and his brother were alive.
Mrs Mullan works for the Cornwall Enterprise Board and is involved in directing Objective One funding to the county. Mr Barratt works for social services.
