The Crawley family of a couple who have not been seen since the Tunisia beach massacre are ‘desperately waiting for news’.

John and Janet Stocker went missing after a gunman opened fire at tourists on a beach on Friday (June 26) near to the hotel the couple was staying at in Tunisia.

Samuel Stocker, from Crawley, has appealed for help to find his grandparents.

His sister Laura wrote on Twitter: “My brother @SLStocker91 is doing an amazing job getting #FindJohnStocker trending. Desperately waiting for news.

He and his relatives have spoken to the media and appealed for help.”

Samuel, who went to Thomas Bennett Community College, said today (Monday June 29) on social media he was still waiting for news on his grandparents.
