Underwater search for missing teenager ends

Police looking for Louis Harris have concluded their underwater search of Weymouth Harbour.

The 18-year-old was last seen on the Dorset seafront four days ago.

There are no plans for any further underwater searches unless new information comes to light.

We will continue to carry out other lines of enquiry. CCTV analysis reveals that Louis was last seen making his way along the quayside past the Harbour Master’s office toward the town bridge at 4.30am.
