POLICE STILL LOOKING FOR MISSING TEENAGER


Police are still appealing for help in finding a missing Dorset teenager.

Seventeen-year-old Oscar Montgomery was last seen on Wednesday, May 27 when he went diving off the coast of Church Ope Cove, in Portland.

He is described as white and of a slim, muscular build with brown hair and a small slit in his left eyebrow.

He was wearing a dark-coloured wetsuit with black flippers and a black snorkel. Searches have been carried out by the police as well as the RNLI, Coastguard and Dorset Search and Rescue but so far there is no trace.

Chief Inspector Lance Cliff, of Dorset Police, said: “We are extremely concerned for Oscar and I am appealing to anyone who may have knowledge as to his whereabouts to please contact police immediately. I would be keen to hear from anyone who was out in the water in the area and recalls seeing a diver matching the description given and may have information that could help us find Oscar.”

Anyone with information or knowledge as to Oscar’s whereabouts is asked to contact Dorset Police.
