SPANISH police have started searching for a Scots holidaymaker who vanished in Ibiza on Monday.

Sister Jordana admitted today she was beside herself with worry as she urged anyone with information to contact police.

She said: “We have reported him missing to the Civil Guard in Ibiza as well as in the UK.

“Police started searching for him yesterday/on Tuesday near the villa where he was staying and the searches have been extended today.

“My dad has also flown out to help.”

She added: “My brother was last seen between around 6am and 10am on Monday at the villa where he was staying near the town of Santa Eulalia.

“There was a party going on at the villa which had been organised for a friend’s birthday.

“It was assumed he had just gone to bed but when the other people at the villa started getting calls from the UK asking them to check up on my brother, they discovered his bed hadn’t been slept in.

“He’d been drinking but he’s the sort of person who doesn’t lose it completely when he’s drunk alcohol and is normally compos mentis.

“He doesn’t appear to have warned anyone he was going to leave the villa for whatever reason so we’re very confused at the moment.”

Insisting there was nothing to indicate her brother’s disappearance might be voluntary, she said: “We believe he may have changed into some jogging trousers and a T-shirt before he was last seen but it’s all a bit confusing at the moment.

“Spanish police at first said they thought he might be out partying somewhere and we’d have to wait when we first tried to report him missing but they started taking things seriously yesterday/on Tuesday and today there’s a search being coordinated across four stations.

“The villa where he was staying is near to the Destino Pacha Ibiza Resort.”

Jordana described Johny as being from Glasgow, although he went to school in Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire.

No-one from the Civil Guard in Ibiza was immediately available for comment this afternoon/yesterday afternoon.
