POLICE  still searching for a  missing British tourist who disappeared the day after Christmas after leaving an upmarket Cape Town hotel (Cape Grace) near the V&A Waterfront

Wilkes McDermid UK blogger goes missing in Cape Town

- Wilkes McDermid, 37, was last seen on Boxing Day

- He never got on board his flight home last Wednesday

- Police combing CCTV in bid to trace him.

- He had been staying at Cape Grace Hotel - the same hotel where honeymoon couple Shrien and Anni Dewani stayed in 2010. Anni Dewani was later murdered allegedly by a hired "hitman"

He was last seen December 26 on a walkway heading towards the Waterfront and was  supposed to fly back to London last Wednesday. McDermid was an influential food and drink blogger.

The last CCTV footage available is believed to be at 7.26pm and shows him about to cross a bridge that leads to the main area of the Waterfront. But friend Bernard Gutman, who Mr McDermid visited on Christmas Eve, said no further footage has been found.

The most recent message Mr McDermid posted from his Twitter account @wilkes888 was from the whisky bar with a picture of a whisky bottle and the caption “Fans… just tried some of this courtesy of @MayorofMOB at Bascule Bar @CapeGrace… surprisingly smooth for a 50.6% ABV dram.” Friends are urgently appealing for information on Twitter, asking users to retweet under the hashtag #FindWilkes.
