Search resumes for missing Derry teenager

The search has resumed this morning for a missing teenager off the coast of Donegal.

The 17 year old boy - named locally as Sean McNair from Derry - was celebrating a friend's 18th birthday at Rathmullen Pier on Friday night when tragedy struck.

A major land and sea search operation was launched - but so far there's been no trace.

His distraught parents are keeping vigil with family and friends at the area where their only son was last seen.
