Search for teenager called off

The search for a 16-year-old who was seen jumping from the Torpoint Ferry into the River Tamar on New Year's Eve has been called off, according to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

Police, Coastguard and the RNLI have spent all day searching for Jordan Cobb from Plymouth, who disappeared at around 9.15pm.

We are treating Jordan as a high risk missing person. 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

– Chief Inspector Ian Drummond Smith, Devon and Cornwall police
