A BODY has been found by friends searching for missing Greenwich University student Harry martin who disappeared almost two weeks ago after he went to take photos of stormy seas.
Devon and Cornwall Police say formal identification of the male body, which was recovered from the sea at Carswell Bay on Saturday (January 11), has not yet taken place but the 18-year-old’s family has been informed.
The first-year film production student at Greenwich University, described as "bright" and "conscientious", was last seen around noon on January 2 walking towards a coastal path near his home in Newton Ferrers, Devon.
Emergency services and volunteers combed a 20-mile stretch of coastline either side of Harry’s home as well as inland areas before making the discovery.
Speaking of Harry while the search was ongoing, a Greenwich University spokeswoman said: "He has been settling in well, enjoying his course as well as wider aspects of university life.
"He is well-regarded by his classmates, who say he is a lovely, solid guy, and he has made good friends in the university."
