The pair had flown to Malaga to pick up a car they were taking to a holiday home in Majorca.

A major Spanish Coastguard-led air and sea search failed to find any trace of Essex-born Rem, who has worked as a DJ in Ibiza, and the operation was suspended last Friday night.

Miguel Chicon, Head of the Balearic Maritime Rescue Centre in Palma, said at the weekend the chances of finding Rem alive if he had gone overboard were practically “nil” given the water temperatures and the fact no life jackets were unaccounted for.

Kingston’s sister Megan has now flown to Spain as police in Majorca, Ibiza and Valencia continue to search for him on land to rule out the possibility he may have got off the ferry at some point.

She says her brother’s loved ones have not given up hope of finding him alive.

Megan told local paper Majorca Daily Bulletin: “Rem has mental health issues. He suffers from paranoia and sometimes gets scared of people.

“There is a possibility that he hid himself somewhere on the ferry and returned to Valencia, stopped and disembarked at the port of Ibiza or that he did come ashore here in Palma.

“It’s just that my mother had lost sight of him.

“All the security forces and the British Consulate staff have been really helpful and are doing all they can. Should anyone spot Rem, please call the police straight away.

“If approaching, please do so calmly as he is fearful and not trusting of people in his current mental state.”

Kingston, director of an Essex-based HR firm, has spent several summer seasons DJing in Ibiza and also says on an Internet biography he has been involved with online radio, pirate FM radio in Essex and London.

He has also performed at clubs in Cairns on Australia’s North Eastern coast and in recent years has publicised himself as a photographer.

In May 2014 he was the subject of a missing persons’ appeal by police in the Scottish Highlands.

Officers said at the time the car enthusiast was believed to be travelling in a blue Ford Mondeo, but later confirmed he had been found safe and well.
