A missing British dad who went missing in Ibiza and who had not been seen since Monday morning has been found dead, according to investigators.

Johny Doherty, 28, had been celebrating a friend’s birthday at a rented villa on the party island but vanished sometime between 6am and 10am on Monday morning.

His family flew out to help search for Mr Doherty but his body was reportedly found floating in a bay near cliffs at Cap Martinet, close to the villa where he was last seen.
