An underwater search for a teenager last seen near the River Ouse has concluded.

Specialist police divers have been searching the river at Naburn, near York, since 19-year-old Jordan Sullivan went missing on Tuesday.

Mr Sullivan was last seen at about 09:30 GMT when he removed his clothing and ran towards the river.

North Yorkshire Police said other inquiries to locate Mr Sullivan would continue.

The force said it did not know what prompted Mr Sullivan's behaviour.

Mr Sullivan's mother, Nicola Jobling, said she wanted to thank people for the messages of support the family had received.

She said: "Jordan is very special to all who know him, because he makes them each feel special. My thoughts are with all of those who must be feeling as upset at this very difficult time as the family are.

"I would like to thank all of the emergency services for their hard efforts to find Jordan. I am also grateful to the volunteers from the search and rescue teams who have given their own time to try and find Jordan."

Mrs Jobling added: "Thank you in particular to those officers who are spending time with me and my family and keeping me informed at all times about how the search and enquiry is going."

Mr Sullivan is described as approximately 5ft 9ins, of slim build with a tattoo of a crucifix between his shoulder blades.
