The family of a young Irishman missing in the Netherlands for almost a month have called on Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to get involved.

An Interpol report has been filed over 20-year-old John Power, from Waterford, who went missing in Maastricht on June 9.

His parents have been appealing to anyone in either Berlin and Maastricht who has information on their son to come forward.

Michael and Jenna Power are now urging Mr Varadkar to organise a meeting with the Dutch ambassador to address what they claim is a lack of "professionalism and competence" of local police involved in the investigation of John's disappearance.

His family are now concentrating their search in Germany and said they were reaching out to the Irish community in Berlin to assist in the hunt.
