MISSING TEENAGER'S BODY FOUND IN RIVER WYE

Search teams looking for Stuart Thomson aged 17, who was reported missing yesterday evening after swimming in the River Wye at Bredwardine have this afternoon found a body.

The coroner has been informed and a post mortem will take place in due course.

Police would like to remind people not to be tempted to swim in rivers or lakes to cool off during the current hot spell of weather as this can be very dangeous, even if you are a strong swimmer.


17 YEAR OLD MISSING AFTER SWIMMING IN THE WYE

Police and rescue services were called after a 17 year old local male who had been swimming in the River Wye at Bredwardine got into difficulties and disappeared from sight. The incident occurred yesterday (Tuesday, 2nd June) at approximately 5.45pm and the youth has not yet been named.

All resources have been deployed, including the Air Unit, Dogs and SARA and search teams, however the person has not yet been found. The search continues.

The Police have concerns with the hot spell we are experiencing will make it tempting to swim in local rivers. All local rivers, including the River Wye can be very deceptive and have strong currents in which even the strongest of swimmer can be overcome.
