The body of missing York teenager Jonathon Havron has been found.

Officers pulled the 18 year olds body from the River Foss yesterday afternoon. He had been missing for nearly two weeks and was last seen in Yates Wine Bar on the 27th of February.

Police say they are not treating his death as suspicious but say they will continue to investigate how he ended up in the water.

Inspector Mark Henderson of York Police said ”I can confirm that the body of the young man found in the River Foss earlier today has been formally identified by his family as that of the missing York teenager Jonathan Havron, who was aged 18 and came from the Huntington area of York.

“Our thoughts are with the family and I ask that they be left alone at this particularly difficult time.

“Although there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his disappearance we are still trying to establish how Jonathan came to be in the river.”
