CHAMONIX, France, Oct 13 (AFP) - The family and friends of a 25-year-old British officer who mysteriously disappeared in the French Alps two months ago have started an internet site appealing for help to find him.  

The site, launched last month, seeks any information on the whereabouts of Blake Hartley, who went missing in the early hours of August 8 after a night of clubbing in the town of Chamonix with friends just two days after his birthday.  

His friends started looking for him when he failed to return to their campground from a walk. A major police search of ravines, waterways and surrounding villages yielded no clues as to what happened.  

Kept up-to-date by his mother, Sally, the site (www.blakehartley.com) states "we believe he is still alive", although many of the testimonials posted speak of Hartley in the past tense.  

"He is most likely to be in a mountainous area in France or maybe Spain or Italy, but in fact, he could be anywhere in Europe or indeed the world," the site says.
