The search has been called off for a diver from Somerset who has gone missing off the coast of Dorset.

The diver, who's believed to be in his fifties and from Taunton, went missing on Sunday (May 24th). It's thought he was a member of a diving club in Bristol.

Despite a major search across a ten-mile area after a call to the UK Coastguard from the boat 'Emma J', the man hasn’t been found.

This hasn’t been an easy decision to make. This man is still missing and we appreciate the concern and worry this is causing his family and friends.

We used many resources to make an extensive search of an area covering 10 square nautical miles. The search and rescue helicopter from Portland and then from Lee-on-Solent carried out a comprehensive search from the air and the lifeboats from Poole and Swanage did an equally thorough job on the sea.

In the absence of any further information we have decided not to resume the search. The family has been informed of this decision.
