New images in missing Megan search

Police searching for a missing student feared to have fallen into a swollen river while on a night out with friends have issued two new pictures of her.

Megan Roberts, 20, has not been seen since she was out drinking with friends in York more than a week ago.

North Yorkshire Police, who believe she "entered the river" while "heavily affected by alcohol", have been searching a stretch of the River Ouse in the city centre.

A spokesman said: "The regional underwater search unit searched the river in the area around Lendal Bridge, where Megan was last seen on CCTV at around 2.20am on Thursday 23 January 2014.

"Specialist teams also conducted a land search along the banks on both sides of the river between Naburn and Scarborough Bridge."

Searching will resume tomorrow.

Ms Roberts, from Wetherby, West Yorkshire, is studying fine art at York St John University.

Anyone with information about her disappearance is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.
