Body of missing male found in search

Callout 06 / 2018 - 12:24  15th February 2018

At lunchtime today our team, backed by our colleagues at North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team, were called out to assist Devon & Cornwall Police with a missing person search at Longdown on the outskirts of Exeter.

Ashburton swift water rescue specialists searching for a missing male outside Exeter

The missing male, a student at University of Exeter, was last seen in the early hours of Tuesday morning at an Exeter nightclub, and Police had become increasingly concerned as his disappearance was out of character.

Around 3:30pm this afternoon, a team of our swift water rescue specialists discovered the body of a young man within our search area.

Formal identification has yet to take place but the family of the missing person have been informed.

We are all deeply saddened by the outcome of this search and send our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the young man at this very difficult time.
