A police search for a missing teenager was due to resume again today – four days after he jumped off a ferry and vanished.

Jordan Cobb, 16, has not been seen since he jumped from a Torpoint Ferry into the River Tamar between Devon and Cornwall as he headed to a New Year's Eve street party in Torpoint with a group of friends.

Hopes are fading that the Stoke Damerel Community College student will be found alive.

Friends and family have staged a candlelit vigil to pray for the missing teenager.

Police were due to join coastguards today to continue the hunt but police have urged the public to keep away from the shoreline.

A spokesman said: "Although we understand their willingness to help, it is not a safe environment and could hamper the co-ordinated search that is taking place."

Last night, friends and family gathered at Hamoaze House in Devonport for a vigil.

Earlier, dozens of volunteers met at the Torpoint ferry crossing, before splitting up to search coastal areas including Devonport, Millbrook, Plymouth Hoe and Mount Batten.
