Police and other emergency services have continued the search for a Newton Ferrers man over the weekend after he went missing during the stormy weather on January 2.
18-year-old man Harry Martin left his home in Membland, Newton Ferrers, around noon on 2 January and is thought to have been going out to take photographs.
Harry was last seen walking in the direction of the coastal path near to his home.
A 20-mile-stretch of coastline, ten miles either side of Harry’s home at Membland, Newton Ferrers, has been extensively searched as well as inland areas with the help of a range of groups and emergency services.
Police have utilised the help of Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, the Urban Search and Rescue Group, Dartmoor Rescue Group, HMCG, the inshore and offshore lifeboats, the search and rescue helicopter from RMB Chivenor but so far to no avail.
A police spokesman said: “Specially-trained police officers as well as search advisors and a lost person search manager have been appointed to help co-ordinate activities across the known areas.
“This provides us with the ability to target our resources to key areas and we have carried out structured searches based on the information we have available.”
Officers have also been providing support to Harry’s family.
Anyone who has seen Harry or knows of his whereabouts is urged to contact police immediately.
He is described as 5ft 11ins tall, of slim build with short dark hair, a light beard and blue eyes. He is thought to be wearing pinky-coloured skinny jeans and a grey hooded jumper.
