Missing man's family travelling to London

10:08 pm on 16 May 2010

The siblings of a missing New Zealander flew out from Auckland Airport on Sunday night so they can join the search for him in London.

Johnny Sleigh, 36, was last seen leaving a bar in Holborn in the West End at 1.20am on Saturday, 8 May.

He did not return to his flat in South London and was reported missing after he failed to turn up for work on Monday morning.

Mr Sleigh's older brother David, and his younger sister Catherine Booth, are flying to London.

Ms Booth says they both feel they need to be in London to do everything they can to help police in their search.

David Sleigh says they'll be meeting with their brother's friends and the police as soon as they get to London so they can get up to speed with how the search is going.
