Police searching for Luke Jobson sadly find body in Yarm

Thanks to everyone who shared the Police Hour appeal, Sadly police have now confirmed a body has been found.

Police searching for missing 22 year old Luke Jobson have sadly found a body in the river at Yarm this afternoon.

Although formal identification has yet to take place, Luke’s family has been notified and they are being kept updated while they receive support from specially trained officers.

Cleveland Police request family & friends of Missing Luke Jobson work with the police rather than carry out their own searches.

Police are aware that members of Luke’s family and friends had planned to attend areas around Yarm School to search for him this morning.

While we completely understand their concern and distress at his disappearance we have to warn anyone who turns up that unfortunately we cannot facilitate public searches at this stage as specially trained police search teams remain in the area. Furthermore Yarm School grounds are private property and it would be inappropriate for people to turn up and access this land.

Again, we acknowledge this public search was organised in the very best interests of Luke and his family but we would ask them to work with police and be guided by experienced and specially trained officers who are well versed in safe, resource effective search methods.

Have you seen Luke? Last Seen in Yarm in the early hours of yesterday.
