Nathan Clarke 24 Feb 2012.jpg(CNS): Updated 3:15pm Senior officers from the RCIPS met with the family of the missing British teaching assistant on Wednesday to update them on the progress of the search and the enquiry to date. The search for Nathan Clarke had resumed following an assessment of the weather conditions this morning concentrating on the sea and shoreline. Weather permitting, police officials confirmed the operation wouldcontinue for the foreseeable future. Officers are reminding volunteers who wish to take part in the searches to report to the police command unit to ensure that the professional coordination of the search continues.

The 31-year-old from Cheltenham in the UK who is a resident of West Bay went missing on the evening of Saturday, 26 February, from the beach at Calico Jack's on the West Bay Road. He was last seen close to the water’s edge by his girlfriend, Lisa Beck. Despite extensive searches on land and sea and scrutiny of hours of CCTV footage over the last 10 days, the only sign of Nathan is his mobile phone.

The phone was found on the seabed by a cruise ship passenger snorkelling some fifty metres out from public beach close to the area where Nathan was last spotted. More than 500 volunteers, some 39 police officers using marine and air resources have combed the area over the last ten days on land and sea, accumulating more than 28,000 man hours in the search, but there has been no further sign of the UK man.

Anyone with information can call the RCIPS on 949-3999 and they can send images of the night he disappeared to or for details on the search visit the Find Nathan Facebook page.
