Cumbria police confirm body is missing teen Callum Chapman
Last updated at 20:46, Tuesday, 17 December 2013
A body found near Maryport golf course is that of missing teenager Callum Chapman, police have confirmed.
Formal identification of the 17-year-old took place earlier this evening.
His body was found by a member of the public on the beach at about 12.30pm today.
There are no suspicious circumstances and the coroner has been informed.
Originally from Grimsby, Callum was last seen at a relative’s house in Maryport at 3.50am on Sunday.
A search was begun and appeals issued for him or anyone who knew where he was to get in touch.
Maryport’s Coastguard Rescue Team and colleagues from Whitehaven carried out a search that covered the river, the harbour, marina and shoreline from north of Allonby to south of Maryport.
A police spokesman had said they believed the teenager might have been trying to return to his home in Holton-le-Clay but they were increasingly worried for his safety because he was not familiar with the area.
Anyone who saw Callum should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0845 3300247.
