An underwater search team has been called in to help police officers search for a missing Penrith man.
26-year-old Thomas McMorrow went missing from the Glenridding area of Penrith on Sunday 5 January 2014.
“We are appealing for Thomas to get in contact with the police, his family or friends to let us know that he is safe and well. We are very concerned about him because this is out of character. Thomas was at his Christmas party, enjoying himself with work colleagues and friends. He was last seen at 10:10 pm on Sunday night. As a precaution we are working with underwater search teams, who will be looking around pier and shoreline of Ullswater to see if there are any indications that Thomas may have been in the area."
Police ask that anyone who has seen Thomas or knows where he is contacts them on 101 and asks to speak to Sergeant Laura Millburn or any officer at Penrith Police Station.
