Body found after man disappeared from boat off Dorset coast

A body has been recovered in a search for a man believed to have fallen from a boat off the Dorset coast almost two weeks ago.

Police said while formal identification has yet to take place, the remains are believed to be those of David Haw.

The 24-year-old from Sussex has been missing since police received a report in the early hours of bank holiday Monday May 2 that he had fallen off a rib in Poole Harbour.

On Saturday, Dorset Police said they received a report at 1.37pm that a body had been found in the harbor waters.

Police said an investigation into the circumstances of the incident, being led by Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team (MCIT), is ongoing.

A 19-year-old Southampton man arrested on suspicion of manslaughter remains under investigation.



I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the search since David’s disappearance for their efforts.

Detective Inspector Simon Huxter

Detective Inspector Simon Huxter of the MCIT said: “David’s family have been kept fully informed and our thoughts are very much with them and all of David’s loved ones at this extremely difficult time.

“We will continue to do everything we can to support them.

“I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the searches since David disappeared for their efforts.”

Extensive searches had been carried out in the days following the incident involving the RNLI, HM Coastguard, Police, Dorset Search and Rescue and specialist dive teams.
