“The search and work on collecting information are underway,” the county police said.
According to a police report, Matej Periš was last seen at 2.30 am on 31 December at Belgrade’s Gotik nightclub, where he was with his six friends with whom he had arrived in Belgrade for New Year’s Eve.
Police have been looking for him for five days.
Serbian media outlets have published a large amount of surveillance camera footage that Periš’s father claims show his son.
Boats have been searching the River Sava, where the Gotik nightclub is located, for several days and today they were joined by divers.
The young man’s father, Nenad Periš, is in Belgrade, cooperating with police and waiting for news about his son.
According to media reports, Matej’s friends returned to Croatia on Monday night.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said on Monday that police have an idea as to what happened to Matej, expressing hope that the young man will be found.
Without revealing details, Vučić said that police will go public with information on the case.
