The family of missing British backpacker Melody OGara are convinced she has started a new life in a cult.

Melodys father Hugh and brother Kevin revealed their belief as they arrived yesterday in Sydney, where the 28-year-old vanished more than two weeks ago.

They dismissed police theories that she committed suicide by leaping off a cliff.

And they said Melody may have decided to follow the teachings of German Eckhart Tolle, who believes people can find fulfilment by dumping their past.

A Tolle book was found among Melodys belongings and she was said to be at a low ebb after a years working holiday in Australia.

Tearful Mr OGara, of Bolton, Lancs, said: Melody had been promoting it to friends and its possible she decided to discover her spiritual side.

He added there were cults that could help Melody disappear and begged anyone sheltering her to contact cops.
