Devon and Cornwall Police are appealing for information after a 72-year-old man went missing from St John near Torpoint, Cornwall. Graham Mitchell was last heard leaving his home in St John yesterday (Thursday 17 April) at 7:30am.
He is white, 5 feet 11", with short, dark grey hair. He is unsteady on his feet and walks with a limp. Devon and Cornwall Police would like anyone with information to contact them by dialling on 101, quoting log reference 785 17/04/14.
Antony Road in Torpoint is closed following an accident involving a car and a motorcycle at Trevol Road. It happened near the fire station. Emergency services are at the scene and police say the road will remain closed for a considerable time.
A body has been found in the River Tamar near where a Plymouth teenager went missing two weeks ago. MoD police were called by a member of the public and sent a launch to the scene and recovered the body.
A huge search of the river took place after the disappearance of Jordan Cobb who was last seen jumping from the Torpoint Ferry on New Year's Eve.
Police searching for a missing 16 year old boy last seen leaping from a ferry, say he may have jumped overboard for a bet. They've vowed to continue searching for Jordan Cobb who jumped from the Torpoint ferry into the River Tamar on New Year's Eve. Jeff Welch reports.
Police searching for a missing 16-year-old boy last seen leaping from a ferry, say he may have jumped overboard for a bet.
But they still haven't ruled out finding Jordan Cobb alive, ten days after he jumped into the Tamar from the Torpoint Ferry. One line of inquiry is that he could have made it ashore and be in hiding. Jeff Welch reports.
We know that there was a discussion between the group about something - we're still waiting for some people to come forward and clarify what went on - but we understand that for some reason Jordan has given his bag to a friend, he's jumped up on to the front of the ferry and then jumped into the water.
There is information in the public domain that suggests this is all a prank, that someone within Jordan's group has engaged with them in relation to a bet.
We do understand that the figure of about £100 has been discussed, but that hasn't been confirmed. That's one line of inquiry that we're keeping an open mind on.
