Candlelit vigil held for Joby Murphy at River Lagan

The family of missing Belfast man Joby Murphy have held a candlelit vigil at the spot where he was last seen.

Friends and relatives gathered at a footbridge over the River Lagan on Friday night.

The 20-year-old is believed to have fallen from it two weeks ago after drinking alcohol at a nearby nightclub.

The official search for his body has now been scaled back, but his family said they would search the river themselves this weekend.

Joby's father Joe and girlfriend Karen thanked everyone who turned out to show their support on Friday.
