The body of a four-year-old boy who slipped from a jetty is believed to have been washed out to sea after specialist sonar equipment failed to find him, experts said.
Volunteers from the UK underwater rescue organisation SARbot used specialist sonar equipment to scour the water for Dylan's Cecil 's body. But after spending hours on the water his body could not be found.
The organisation was using sonar equipment which is more sensitive than that used by police and had earlier said that if the youngster's body was still in the area, they would find it.
We've just completed the search and have searched the whole bay and we've not found anything.
We believe that the currents may have taken him right out to sea now, he's certainly not in the bay.
The relatives of Dylan Cecil, who slipped into the sea from a jetty, say they are grateful after police believe they have found his body.
The mother of Dylan Cecil says is "devastated" but will stay in Burnham-on-Sea for "as long as it takes" until her son is found.
The search for a four-year-old boy - who went missing in the sea while on holiday - has been called off by rescuers.
