UNDERWATER searches continued yesterday for missing teenage soldier, Tyler Pearson.

Signaller Pearson, 18, was last seen entering the River Ouse near the Lowther pub at about 2.30am last Thursday.

Since then, members of the Yorkshire and the Humber Marine Search Unit have carried out numerous underwater searches and scans from boats on the river.

Searches did not take place over the weekend, and it is unclear whether they will continue today.
