The family of Matthew Jordan have issued a statement thanking people for their support.
“We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone for all of your support and kind words and actions in trying to help us to find Matthew.
“For those of you that knew him, it represents what a fantastic, friendly and humorous person he was.
For those of you who didn’t know him, yet still put a lot of your time and effort into searching for him, it shows that people in your community do care, are selfless, and have a wonderful team spirit.
You have been truly fantastic and we feel part of the community now.
“Thank you to all who have searched both professionally and personally, with special thanks to Mountain Rescue, lake search teams, Dan and the volunteer group.
“Everyone has been a great tower of strength to us over the past few difficult weeks.
You all took Matthew to your hearts and made it your mission to find him.
Without all of your help we would have been lost.
“We found you Matthew, we love you dearly and are taking you home to be at peace.”
Cumbria Police have released CCTV as they search for Matthew Jordan, 20, who went missing in Bowness-on-Windermere.
Matthew, who's from the Middlesborough area, hasn't been since 27th March following a night out.
Detective Chief Inspector Bob Qazi said: “The CCTV images show a male walking though the church yard next to the pub near to the pub that Matthew and his friends were at. We would like to speak to this man in the hope that he may have information on where Matthew went.
“I’d also ask that if there is anyone who may have seen a person matching Matthew’s description in the early hours of 27th March to get in touch.”
