Missing Student Harry Martin: Body Found
Emergency services searching for a student who disappeared after going out to take pictures of stormy seas have found a body.
Harry Martin left his home on January 2 and was last seen walking towards a coastal path near his home in Devon.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed a body had been found in the sea by coastguards.
"We were informed by coastguards at about 10.40 this morning," the force spokesman said.
"I must stress that the body has not been identified at this stage."
The discovery came after the 18-year-old's family and friends began a new search for him, leaving Noss Mayo village hall at 8am this morning.
Police and around 100 members of the public had previously joined searches for the photography student, described as 5ft 11ins, of slim build with short dark hair and blue eyes.
A 20-mile stretch of coastline, 10 miles either side of Harry's home, was also scoured by police and emergency services.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, the Urban Search and Rescue Group, Dartmoor Rescue Group, HMCG, the inshore and offshore lifeboats and the rescue helicopter from RMB Chivenor were involved.
On Friday, police said the search was moving from "an active stage to a responsive one" after exhaustive searches involving many officers and specialist resources.
Mr Martin had recently started a course in film and TV production at Greenwich University in London but was back home visiting his family for Christmas.
