28th February 2015, Comments 0 comments

Authorities in Monaco have sifted through surveillance camera footage and sent divers into harbour waters in search of an English boxer who went missing last week after being involved in a bar dispute.

Michael Graydon, a 29-year-old boxing promoter from Bristol, was last seen on February 21 at 1:35 am local time as he was leaving the "La Rascasse" bar at Monaco's Port Hercule.

An evening of drinking with a friend ended with a fight in the toilet with some other bar customers.

Surveillance cameras caught Graydon leaving the bar alone and running a few hundred metres (yards) towards the Saint Devote, after which they lose track of him.

The Monaco authorities launched an investigation on Tuesday but have failed to come up with any leads.

A former boxer, Graydon was in the tiny principality to watch a boxing bout on the night of his disappearance.

He failed to turn up at the fight in which Kazakh Gennady Golovkin defeated his British opponent Martin Murray.

Graydon, a father of one, also failed to make his flight back to Britain the next day.

Authorities have released a photo and description of the 1.75 metres (5 feet 7 inches) tall, brown haired, tattooed Graydon.

His family arrived in Monaco from Bristol on Friday and have been seeking more clues via Facebook and through posters they have been putting up in the area.
