'We went on to a neighbouring island but she stayed there with another girl I know who had travelled with us on the boat over.
'I then had to travel back to Koh Rong after leaving my passport at the hostel and when I got there two people told me she had gone missing.
'I assumed she would turn up but I have since travelled another 12 hours on a bus to Siem Reap and she still has not been found. She is supposed to be in Siem Reap by now.
'From my experience I would say it is out of character for her not to come back after a few hours and it is a small island.
'Even if you go your separate ways after a few drinks you see people again ten or 20 minutes later. She should have come back by now.'
Ryan explained that the hostel held passports to ensure customers paid the bill but Amelia had not gone back for hers.
'She hasn't gone back for that or checked out which raises a red flag,' he said.
Amelia was last seen wearing a tropical print shirt, according to the Lucie Blackman Trust.

A Foreign Office spokesperson said: 'We are assisting the family of a British woman who has been reported missing in Cambodia and are in close contact with the Cambodian police.'
