Police searching for missing Gosforth man Alex Byers believe he may have gone into the River Tyne.

At 4am on Thursday, December 1, officers received a report of a man had fallen from the Tyne Bridge into the River Tyne.

An immediate search was carried out of the river, however no one was found.

His family have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
