Relatives have stepped up their appeal for information about the whereabouts of 23-year-old British man Harry Stagg, who is thought to be in southern Spain after hitchhiking from the UK last year.

Harry, who is from East Cowes on the Isle of Wight, was reported as missing at the Guardia Civil station in Álora last week by his aunt Paula Morris, who lives in the area.

She had been expecting him as he had told the family that he would spend Christmas in Spain.

The last contact the family had with Harry, said his aunt, was on 29 November when he called home from a police station in Huesca, northern Spain, although no one was there to take his call.

"He managed to call his friend who he had been travelling with and they arranged to meet; this didn't happen," Paula said.

"Harry doesn't have a mobile phone and we are not sure if his bank card may have run out as a new one has been received at his home on the Isle of Wight."

According to the missing persons report he was spotted in Antequera on 13 December, hitchhiking with a sign reading Campillos.

More recently, said his aunt, he is thought to have been seen in Gibraltar, juggling at traffic lights.

The family has urged anyone who sees him to ask him to get in touch with his family and to contact the Guardia Civil in Álora.

Harry is around1.85m tall with dark wavy hair. He wears black clothes and trainers and carries a black rucksack.
