Search for missing Jerseyman

A coordinated search between the emergency services took place in Jersey in December 2015 to look for a 20-year-old man who disappeared after a work night out.

Eight months later a body was recovered from a reservoir, near to where Adrian Lynch went missing. Adrian's passport was in the jacket on the body.

Adrian left friends at a work party at midnight on Friday 4th December and got into a taxi to go home.

The last known sighting of him was in the early hours of Saturday morning (5th) in the area of Bon Air Stables.
