Police diving teams have called off their search for the 17-year-old snorkeller who went missing off the Dorset coast on 27 May.

Oscar Montgomery, who according to police was from the Birmingham area, was last seen near Church Ope Cove, Portland, at about 5pm on Wednesday 27 May. After the alarm was raised just after 7.30pm, the search got underway, and utilised helicopters from the Coastguard, the Royal Navy and police, along with RNLI lifeboats and two Navy warships.

As reported here, the Coastguard announced late the following day that the air and sea search had been ‘suspended, pending further information’, but the police had been continuing to comb the coastline, and had deployed divers to search underwater.

Now, the Dorset Police have announced they have ended their diving search, but that they are continuing to make inquiries, and were still liaising with the RNLI, coastguard and the UK Missing Persons Unit.
