The staff on the private beach found her purple backpack the next morning with her bag, phone and bank cards.

Her family was informed of her disappearance when she didn't end up at the Nest Beach Club hostel that day.

More than 100 army, navy, and police personnel, as well as volunteers and family members, combed the nearby waters and dense jungle.

Amelia, who saved two years before the trip by working at Lloyds bank, left on September 27 and first flew to Vietnam.
