Friends of Tom McMorrow, 26, of Penrith, have also been searching in and around Glenridding, where he was last seen.

Mr McMorrow, a chef, left a work party at the village’s Inn on the Lake at about 10.30pm on Sunday January 5. He has not been seen since.

A full-scale police search was launched, including specialist divers taking to the waters of Ullswater.

A police spokesman said today: “Police officers continue to carry out daily searches along the shore line in their attempts to locate Mr McMorrow.”

Appeals have continued to be made through social media for information and for help in locating Mr McMorrow.

His family have thanked the public for not giving up hope.

A special group was set up on the social networking site Facebook to allow people to co-ordinate their rescue efforts.

The police spokesman added: “Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cumbria police on 101.”
