Rathmullan search continues for missing Derry teen

Underwater searches are continuing for a 17 year old boy who's missing, feared drowned, in Co. Donegal.

The Sheephaven sub aqua unit as well as coastguard helicopters have been stood down for the night but local divers from the Inisowen sub aqua team are still searching Lough Swilly for the boy.

The alarm was raised after the teenager - from Derry - got into difficulty while swimming close to Rathmullan pier in the early hours of this morning.
