Police searching for a scuba diver who went missing off North Yorkshire on 8 July have recovered a body off the coast of Scarborough. It was located by officers from the Yorkshire & Humberside Underwater Search & Marine Unit on Monday (23 July).
The disappearance of the diver, a 74-year-old Scarborough man, was reported on Divernet on 9 July.
According to Scarborough News the man had been diving a 46m-deep wreck off Ravenscar from the boat Francis Ann, privately owned by members of Scarborough Sub Aqua Club.
The dive-group consisted of both members and non-members.
When he failed to resurface, an extensive air-sea search & rescue operation was launched and continued before being scaled down some four days later.
Police have been in contact with the diver’s family but have yet to release his name.
