Underwater search teams are looking round the pier and shoreline of Ullswater to see if Thomas McMorrow has been in the area.

The 26-year-old, of Penrith, went missing from the Glenridding area late on Sunday night.

He was last seen at the Inn on the Lake at Glenridding at 10.10pm after a works Christmas party.

A search, initially involving police and mountain rescuers, was begun.

This morning, police sergeant Laura Milburn said the divers had been called in as a precaution.

“We are appealing for Thomas to get in contact with the police, his family or friends to let us know that he is safe and well. We are very concerned about him because this is out of character,” she added.

Mr McMorrow is described as about 5ft 11ins tall, slim build and with short brown hair which is receding at the front.

He was wearing blue denim trousers, a long sleeved white shirt and brown shoes.

Anyone who knows where he is or who has seen someone matching his description, should call Cumbria police on 101 and ask to speak to Sgt Millburn or any officer at Penrith.

Mr McMorrow has been urged to personally contact police or family and friends.

“If he can hear this appeal, please get in contact with someone, we all just want to make sure you are safe,” added Sgt Milburn.
