EMERGENCY services continued their searches to try and find missing Callum Osborne-Ward yesterday.

The 18-year-old has been unaccounted for since an incident in the water off Rockley Park at around 4pm on Monday afternoon.

At low tide yesterday morning, Tuesday, July 27, members of the public were seen walking along the shoreline calling Callum’s name in the hopes he may have got to safety and be lost on land.

Multi-agency searches resumed at around 10am after the tide had come in, allowing boats to actively search the area.

This was after extensive searches on land, sea and air took place late into the evening on Monday, July 26.

In a statement released yesterday late morning a Dorset Police spokeswoman said: "Multi-agency searches are continuing today (Tuesday) along the shoreline and in the water in an effort to try and find Callum. Dorset Police is working together with a dive team from Devon & Cornwall Police and colleagues from HM Coastguard, RNLI, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, NPAS and Solent search and rescue helicopters.

"Yesterday, officers were also assisted by Dorset Search & Rescue (DorSAR)."

And Dorset Police were asked to issue a message of thanks on behalf of Callum’s family for the support shown by the local community, with donations of clothing, shoes, blankets, food and drink delivered to them at Rockley Park, which the family says it really appreciates. They added that they were overwhelmed by the generosity of members of the public.

Chief Inspector Claire Phillips, of Dorset Police, said: “All the agencies involved in these searches have been working tirelessly over the past 24 hours as we continue to make every effort to find Callum.

“We are doing everything we can to support his family and I would echo their thanks to the local community for the generosity they have shown.

“I would continue to urge anyone with any information that might assist our efforts to locate Callum to please contact Dorset Police immediately.”

As reported, emergency services rushed to Rockley Point following concerns for people in the water.

Ten people were assessed by paramedics and three were taken to hospital as a precaution.

Throughout the day people gathered close to the scene of the incident, walking their dogs and fishing off Lake Pier.

Residents in the area expressed grave concern regarding Callum’s welfare, hoping he would be found soon, safe and well.

Police boats, divers and helicopters could be seen surveying Poole Harbour, Lytchett Bay and the water around Rockley throughout the day.

A Poole resident has started a GoFundMe page for Callum and his family. It has already reached its fundraising target of £500 but the organiser has said additional donations are welcome.

Callum is described as white, five feet five inches tall and with short brown hair. He has the word ‘Dad’ tattooed on his chest and was wearing blue swimming shorts.
