Police: 'Search for Jordan will not be Stood Down'

There are fears that a teenager may have jumped from the Torpoint ferry for a £100 bet.
Jordan Cobb was on his way to a New Year's Eve party in Cornwall with a group of friends.
Teams searching for the 16 year old have told Pirate FM they will not give up until he is found.
Police, coastguard and the Royal Navy are taking part in Thursday's searches of the river bank and river, ten days after Jordan disappeared.
The search area stretches from Drake's island to the Tamar Bridge.
Divers are also helping in the hunt for clues. They are expected to examine the spot where he disappeared in front of his group of friends.
Detective Inspector Nick West said: "As long as he's missing someone will be searching for Jordan.
"There is every chance that Jordan, on that night, could have got to shore somewhere. He could be looking at what's going on today and be hugely embarrassed at the incident he's caused. It might be for that reason he's afraid to come forward at the moment. If that is the case we would appeal for him to contact the police."
Pirate FM's James Craig is among the teams on the riverbank of the Tamar. He said: "The mood here as yet another day of searches gets underway is one of quiet determination. But after ten days with still no sign of Jordan teams admit hopes of finding him alive are fading."
Nigel Bunker from the coastguard said: "I've spoken to Jordan's father and certainly it all strikes very close to hope. We're local people and we're trying to do a first rate local response.
"There is hope that we will be able to get a result. Sadly it is now a very, very wide search area and we're going to need to have all the luck we can get to get a positive result."4:22pm 10th January 2013
