Mother's appeal to 'keep looking for Josh'

Search for missing student urged

The parents of a Jurby teenager who went missing on New Year's Eve have appealed for people to ‘keep looking for him’.

A full scale search was launched after 19-year-old student Joshua Caley disappeared eight days ago.

Security cameras captured him falling into Ramsey Harbour from the East Quay at about 1am, shortly after he became separated from a group of friends.

His parents had arranged to pick him up after a party.

Although the full scale operation to find Josh was scaled down earlier this week, the coastguard is continuing to conduct searches when the tides are favourable.

Meanwhile Josh's mum Joy has thanked well-wishers for supporting a Go Fund Me appeal on social media, to help relatives from the Philippines travel to the island to support the family.
