Cleveland Police are continuing the search for missing Andrew Roy from Cornwall, Officers have been assisted by specialist search units.

A specialist police diving team searched an area of Hartlepool Marina today as the search for missing 51 year old Andrew Roy continues. Andrew, who is from Cornwall but is currently working in Hartlepool, was reported missing after failing to turn up for work on Friday (10th February).

A number of officers are conducting patrols around the marina, while others are searching boats.

A number of divers are also searching under water with the helicopter searching above.

The weather conditions are very challenging with strong winds and heavy rain.

A spokesman for Cleveland Police, said: “We are increasingly concerned for the welfare of 51-year-old Andrew Roy.

CCTV from around 11.15pm on Thursday 9th February shows him near Portals Place on the marina.

Sgt Dave Lester said: “Asking our colleagues from Northumbria’s specialist marine unit to help today was a logical next step in our search efforts because CCTV footage shows Andrew around the marina late on Thursday night.

“We are, however, following other lines of inquiry as well and our main concern is to find him safe and well.

“We are working with Andrew’s home force, Devon and Cornwall Police, to keep his family informed and they’re being supported by officers at what must be an incredibly stressful and difficult time.

“Our thoughts are with them and once again I’d ask anyone who has seen Andrew to contact Cleveland Police on the 101 number while we continue to search for him.”
