Police looking for a missing student who disappeared during a night out have confirmed that a pair of jeans found during a search did not belong to him.

Matthew Jordan, 20, from Middlesbrough, went missing in Bowness, Cumbria, in the early hours of 27 March.

A pair of jeans were found by volunteers on Saturday.

But Det Insp Furzana Nazir said it had been established they were not Mr Jordan's. Friends and family again joined the search effort on Sunday.

Mr Jordan 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.
