His distraught mum Catherine O'Sullivan, from Neath, has been out looking with family members most days and said: "We have tried to retrace his steps because we have footage of him. We have come out at three o'clock in the morning into the area to walk the route we know he took. We wanted to see how well lit it might be and to search for an answer really.

"Jack's birthday was hell on earth, it really was. I want the world to try and give me an answer to where Jack is."

Every day for 10 weeks, his older brother Ben has been visiting a Bristol flyover, which you pass on the way to Bristol Airport, looking for his brother.

He told the BBC: "There's been a lot of unanswered questions since then. But going down there has provided us a way of trying to get to the bottom of everything. So this has become a daily routine almost."
