A specialist search-and-rescue dog has been brought in to look for a British backpacker who has gone missing while on holiday in Cambodia.
The 21-year-old hasn’t been seen since the early hours of 24 October.
Police have been focusing their search on the coast and sea as Amelia was last seen at a party at Police Beach, where her handbag was found with her purse, phone and bank cards inside.
Almost a week on, the specialist K9 team returned to the bay as efforts to find her are stepped up.
Officials explained that the dog would not be able to retrace her exact steps but could detect areas where Amelia’s scent could be found.
They have been checking the trails around the beach after CCTV showed her heading to the party just before 2am but not returning.
Meanwhile, Amelia’s father, brother and uncle boarded a boat to join a sea search.
Officials have been scouring the island’s coastline and asking fishermen to help with the operation.
The governor of Koh Rong, Noun Bunthol, told Sky News that six men are still being questioned as witnessed but no one has been charged.
The men are all Cambodian and some work in the island’s bars and hotels.
Today, residents from the village made offerings and prayed for Amelia’s safe return.
