    The family of Shahzada Dawood said: "Our son Shahzada Dawood and his son, Suleman, had embarked on a journey to visit the remnants of the Titanic in the Atlantic Ocean.

    "As of now, contact has been lost with their submersible craft and there is limited information available."

    Shahzada is one of Pakistan's richest men and has strong ties with the UK, serving on the board for Prince's Trust charity.

    The family is believed to live in a Surrey mansion.

    Shahzada's father Hussain, 79, is the Chairman of the Dawood Hercules Corporation. He was born in Mumbai and attended the University of Sheffield, according to MailOnline.

    The expedition is believed to have launched from Newfoundland, Canada, on Saturday (June 17). The trip costs $250,000 (£195,000) per person.
