Concern is growing for a Scottish man who has been missing in Jamaica for almost a week.
Graham Bentley’s worried family last heard from him on October 13.
The 45-year-old, who has been living in the Cayman Islands for the last 22 years, travelled to Jamaica last Monday.
He had flown to the Caribbean to obtain a British passport for his two-year-old daughter Mia Annabella, who has born in the Dominican Republic.
Speaking to the Daily Record, his sister Sharon Bentley said his disappearance was “totally out of character.”
She said: “We are desperately seeking answers.
“We don’t know what’s happening and are really struggling to find out any information.
“The last contact he had was with his wife Mariely over a week ago.
“We are besides ourselves with worry and panicking that something bad has happened.”
Mr Bentley, who is originally from Lanarkshire, flew into Norman Manley International Airport around 6.45 pm on October 14.
His embassy appointment for his daughter’s passport was scheduled for the following morning, however his family are still trying to work out if he attended.
Ms Bentley added: “He was desperate to get to the appointment because this was last attempt to get Annabella a passport so her and Mariely could come to live with him in the Cayman Islands and so he could bring Annabella home to visit my mum in Scotland.
“He would not have missed that appointment deliberately.”
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman: “We are supporting the family of a missing British man in Jamaica.”
