THE search for missing man David Haw who fell from a boat in Poole Harbour on Monday has entered its fourth day.

Police say efforts to locate the 24-year-old “are ongoing”, more than 72 hours after he fell overboard from a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) following a collision with a navigation buoy.

As reported, a 19-year-old man from Southampton arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of manslaughter has been released under investigation. Police have since added that no further arrests have been made.
