York river search continues for missing teenager

Jonathan Havron
Mr Havron's family said they were "extremely worried" about him

Police are continuing to search for a teenager who has been missing since a night out in York on Friday.

Jonathan Havron, from Huntington, was last seen by his friends at 2130 GMT in Yates's bar in the city centre.

Police now believe the 18-year-old was in The Artful Dodger pub on Micklegate later that night until the early hours of Saturday.

Mr Havron's mother and sister said it was "completely out of character" for him to go missing.

'Please contact police'

Joanne Wigmore and sister Nikita Ashby said: "We know he would contact us if he was able to and so we are extremely worried.

"If anyone knows anything at all, no matter how small you may think the piece of information is, please contact the police."

The women said Mr Havron enjoyed nights in with his friends, playing computer games, and was a "happy" student at Bishop Burton College.

They said he had ambitions to join the police and had a "strong interest in forensic science".

They added: "Jonathan has a 100% attendance record at college and so this is extremely unusual for him to be missing like this."

Leather jacket

Police are continuing to search the Foss and Ouse rivers and the city centre for Mr Havron.

They have appealed for anyone with information or anyone who saw Mr Havron in The Artful Dodger pub to come forward.

He is described as 5ft 8in (1.7m) tall, with dark brown hair and blue eyes.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a white shirt, black leather jacket and dark walking boots.
