“Cleveland Police officers, with help from the Harbour Police, the RNLI, the Coastguard and the Fire Brigade, have been searching the area but have not managed to locate Andrew. His family is being kept updated and supported as our search continues.

Andrew is a white male, with short dark hair, blue eyes and he was wearing a black donkey jacket and blue jeans.

“Similarly we would ask anyone who visits the Marina, perhaps to a boat moored there, to think carefully if they have seen anyone matching his description and to get in touch. “We would also ask businesses and boat owners to look through any CCTV they have, to see if it has captured anything which could help our inquiries.”
