Search for boy seen jumping from ferry

The search has resumed today for a missing teenager from Plymouth, who was spotted jumping from the Torpoint ferry into the River Tamar. He has been named as 16 year old Jordan Cobb from Plymouth.

Brixham Coastguard received a Mayday distress call from the Torpoint ferry at 9.15pm last night reporting a man overboard near the ferry's slipway in Torpoint.

Police, the coastguard and the RNLI conducted an extensive search for the teenager after he failed to reappear. Police are appealing for information.

We are treating Jordan as a high risk missing person and we are working with the coastguard to try and locate him."The river was extensively searched by air and sea for several hours, but there remains a possibility that he managed to swim ashore, and I would ask anyone with information to call the police on 101."
