The body of a British man who went missing in the Santa Clara dam three weeks ago, has been found.

The search for Richard Chapelow, 29, had been called off last week on Wednesday after more than two weeks of fruitless scouring.
His body was spotted by a passerby this past Saturday and was taken to Beja Hospital for a post-mortem.

Mr. Chapelow went missing on Monday, 20 August, after being flung into the water from a banana boat being pulled by a speedboat.
He was part of a group of 10 Britons enjoying a day at the dam, and was on holiday as a guest of Jon Hunt, the founder of the Foxtons estate agency, who owns a villa in Portugal.
