Family of teen found dead near Maryport thanks rescue team

The family of a teenager found dead on a beach near Maryport have asked for donations for the town’s inshore rescue team.

Callum William Moody-Chapman, 17, was discovered by a passer-by near Maryport Golf Club on Tuesday of last week.

Callum, from Grimsby, was visiting relatives in Ennerdale Road, Maryport, and was missing for three days before his body was found.

Maryport Inshore Rescue were among those who spent hours searching for Callum.

They carried out an operation that covered an area including the river and shoreline from north of Allonby to south of Maryport.

His family said they wanted any donations for his funeral to go to the rescue team.

His mother Nichola Moody, 38, and father Kevin Chapman, 50, thanked all those involved in the search for their son.

They said in a joint statement: “The police and Maryport Inshore Rescue have shown such professionalism and compassion, and have been amazing with ourselves and extended family.”

Callum’s funeral will be held in Grimsby on Monday.

An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned to May 23.
