Jordan Cobb Missing: 'Jumped From Ferry For £100 Bet'

A teenager who was last seen jumping from a ferry may have leapt into the water for a £100 bet, police say.

Jordan Cobb, 16, was intending to take part in a New Year's Eve street party in Torpoint, Cornwall, after catching the ferry from Plymouth, Devon.

The alarm was raised shortly after 9pm when he vanished beneath the surface of the River Tamar, around 70 yards from the shore.

Police investigating his disappearance say they have been scanning social media and believe it may be the result of a "prank gone wrong".
