Police cannot not be 'sure' missing boy, 11, is in river

Police have said they are not "100% sure" a missing 11-year-old boy is in a river where they have been searching.

It was feared the schoolboy fell into the River Towy on Tuesday at about 16:00 GMT.

Firefighters, the coastguard, a lifeboat crew and an RAF Sea King rescue helicopter joined the search.

But Insp Eric Evans from Dyfed-Powys Police told a news conference on Wednesday there was always an "element of doubt" when dealing with children.
