I need a query that looks like this:

the data are as follows:

MyTable (Col1, col2)

1 1
2 1
3 2
4 2
5 3

Col1 = Number used
Col2 = supervisor of col1

I need to know the supervisor of Number 5 and all superiors

Example, selecting 5, the result should be:
3, 2 and 1

3 is the supervisor of 5
2 is the supervisor of 3
1 is the supervisor of 2

Thank you for helping me

SELECT Col1,Col2
FROM @MyTable
WHERE Col1 = @YourID

UNION ALL

SELECT t.Col1,t.Col2
FROM Superiors s
INNER JOIN @MyTable t
ON t.Col1 = s.Col2
WHERE t.Col1 <> t.Col2
)

SELECT  Col2
