Person missing at sea

Person missing at sea

UPDATE

Police and Navy are now back from Firth on Thames, they are downloading the information collected with the Remis, the torpedo type tool used to swim along the bottom of the sea bed and photograph large areas.

The information will then be analysed. This could take until tomorrow. It is expected that this part of the search could take up to four days.

Currently there is no one at the scene.

Police apologise to media for releasing the missing boys age as 13, we have since spoken to the family representative and she has told us he is definately 11 years of age.

The other males who were involved in the incident are all still at Middlemore Hosital and not expected to be released until Monday. They are aged 39, 21 and 15.

There will be no further update tonight from Police.
