POLICE have released CCTV images showing the last confirmed sightings of missing Middlesbrough man.

Matthew Jordan was visiting the Bowness area in the Lake District with three friends and was last seen in the early hours of Thursday, March 27 following a night out.

Despite an extensive search the 20-year-old Teesside University criminology student has not been seen since he became separated from his friends when they thought he had gone to use a toilet.

Detective Inspector Furzana Nazir, of Cumbria Police, said: “We are releasing these images in the hope that this jogs someone’s memory, did you see someone that looked like Matthew on this night? No matter how irrelevant you may believe your information is, we would like to hear from you.

“Matthew’s family and friends have been here since the day he was reported missing. We have detectives, local officers, underwater search teams, mountain rescue and search dogs all trying to find him.”


The first CCTV images show Matthew leaving his friends who were at the Stag’s Head at 0.26am and walking off in the direction of Church Street towards the Lake Road promenade.

The second part is following Matthew’s return and shows him sitting outside the same pub. He then heads off down Church Street at 0.44am - the last confirmed sighting.

DI Nazir added: "It remains unknown as to where he went. I can’t reiterate enough how out of character this is.

"I would like to appeal to the public again to please get in touch with any information they have.”

Matthew is described as 6ft tall, of medium build, with dark brown hair. He was last seen wearing a navy long sleeved shirt, jeans and grey pull up boots.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for the duty sergeant at Windermere.
