His rucksack was found on the path above.

Officers want to hear from anyone who might have seen what happened to the 16 year old on Tuesday morning.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are appealing for information following a teenage boy who fell from a cliff in Newquay and remains in a critical condition.
