Tragedy struck as the search for a missing teenager in the River Thames near Lechlade-on-Thames ended with the discovery of a body.

Emergency services were called to the scene after a teenage boy went missing in the river overnight.

Witnesses reported seeing a helicopter and officers with torches searching the area near Halfpenny Bridge.

The boy had been with three others, all estimated to be around 17 years old.

Three others had entered the water to try and find the missing boy.

Search boats were launched from Lechlade Marina as police and rescue teams scoured the area.

A body was eventually recovered from the river by specialist police divers from Avon and Somerset Police.

Although formal identification has not yet taken place, the boy’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by trained officers.

The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesperson said: “Searches have been taking place in the River Thames after a report a teenager was in the water near Lechlade on Thames.

“Police were called at around 10pm yesterday (Sunday 30 April) and emergency services attended.

“Officers have been supported by the National Police Air Service, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service and Severn Area Rescue Association while searches continued into the early hours of this morning (Monday).

“A group of four had been at the location together, and some had entered the water to try and find the boy. They are all accounted for.”

Our thoughts are with the boy’s family and friends during this difficult time.
