The father of a backpacker has flown to Thailand to try and find his daughter.
The search has been hampered by poor communication
Lisa May, 25, from Cheltenham, was in Phi Phi when the tsunami struck on Boxing Day and has not been in contact with her family since.
Her father John and sister Nicola have now both flown to Thailand to co-ordinate the search.
Lisa went to Thailand with her family two weeks ago to act as bridesmaid at Nicola's wedding. She stayed to spend Christmas with friends.
'Hoping for best'
Mr May arrived in Bangkok on Friday and said misleading reports and damaged phone lines were making the search very difficult.
"We still haven't heard anything. The information we get is misinformation.
"Nobody knows where anybody is. There are thousands still lost," he said.
Lisa's former boyfriend, David Smalley, 28, of Winchcombe, Cheltenham, said he last heard from her on December 23.
"She texted me to say she had slipped over and broken a tooth and was trying to
send me a picture of what she looked like on the phone," he said.
He added that he was in regular touch with Lisa's family out in Thailand and
was relaying messages to concerned friends.
"Nobody is thinking the worst at the moment. We are all hoping for the best."
