The family of a 21-year-old musician missing for more than a month are living through their "worst nightmare", his father has said.

A vigil has been held in Swansea for Tapiwa Matuwi, known as Tapi, who went missing after a night out in the city.

Munyaradzi Zvada said each day without knowledge of his son's whereabouts was "harder and harder".

The graduate was last seen near Swansea Marina at about 07:00 GMT on 7 February after being at Fiction nightclub.

"We haven't found anything significant in over 28 days," said Mr Zvada.

"Our life came to a stop the day we found out that he was missing."
