MANCHESTER, Jamaica — The search for a teen, who disappeared after he went swimming at a river in Manchester, came to an end yesterday when his body was discovered on the Alligator Pond beachfront in the parish.

Reports from the Alligator Pond police are that 16-year-old Christopher Wellington and his family members were swimming at Port Keiser River on Monday, when he left to swim in the adjoining sea and later disappeared.

The police and members of the Marine Division were contacted and a search conducted, to no avail.

However, another search party was organised consisting of the Alligator Pond police, local fishermen and family members, leading to the discovery of Wellington’s body about 11:45 am yesterday.

The body was removed to the morgue and awaits a post mortem examination.
