Police looking for missing student Euan Coulthard, who vanished after a night out, have found a body in the River Wear.

The parents of 19 year old Leicestershire student Euan Coulthard have said their lives will never be the same again.

He disappeared nearly two weeks ago after a university night out in Durham, where his body was pulled from the river on Friday.

His mum and dad paid tribute to Euan, describing him as a friendly, out-going and fun-loving young man who embraced university life and had a very bright future ahead of him.

They also said that they will be forever grateful to the diver who helped police search the river for his body.

A book of condolence has been set up for him at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham. People are also being encouraged to email their messages to if they are unable to attend.

A candle lit vigil is also being planned in the teenager's home village of Bottesford in Leicestershire on Saturday night.
