The mother of Matthew Jordan, whose body was recovered from the water at Windermere yesterday, has paid tribute to her "fantastic, friendly and humorous" son.
Clare Jordan said: "We found you Matthew. We love you dearly and are taking you home to be at peace."
Cumbria Police confirmed a body recovered from Windermere is that of missing Matthew Jordan, 20, from Teesside, who disappeared in March.
The student from Teesside hasn't been seen since last Thursday, when he went out with friends in the Lake District.
The family of missing Matthew Jordan from Middlesbrough have appealed for the public's help as police search for him.
