The body of Matthew Jordan, 20, of Middlesbrough, was discovered by police divers in the lake yesterday morning. He had last been seen in Bowness on March 27 on a night out with friends.

Friends, family and members of the public were involved in an extensive search of the local area.

Today, his family said a "heartfelt thank you" for the support and kind words they had received.

“For those of you that knew him, it represents what a fantastic, friendly and humorous person he was. For those of you who didn’t know him, yet still put a lot of your time and effort into searching for him, it shows that people in your community do care, are selfless, and have a wonderful team spirit. You have been truly fantastic and we feel part of the community now.

“Thank you to all who have searched both professionally and personally, with special thanks to mountain rescue, lake search teams, Dan and the volunteer group, and thanks to Low Wood Hotel for their kind hospitality.

“Everyone has been a great tower of strength to us over the past few difficult weeks. You all took Matthew to your hearts and made it your mission to find him. Without all of your help we would have been lost.

“We found you Matthew, we love you dearly and are taking you home to be at peace.”

Police are not treating Mr Jordan's death as suspicious.
