Search called off for Briton missing in Alentejo dam

The search for a British man who went missing in the Santa Clara dam in Odemira, in the Alentejo region, has been called off after more than two weeks of fruitless searches.

Richard Chapelow, 29, disappeared in the dam’s waters after being flung from a banana-boat-type inflatable during the afternoon of Monday, 20 August. The search for the Briton was called off on Tuesday (4 September); Commandant Mário Batista, head of the local fire service who was coordinating the search, said it had been called off “after everything possible was done” to find Mr. Chapelow.
