The search started after the man's diving companion surfaced near their boat, reporting that his friend was missing. He was in a party of divers exploring wrecks of the First World War German fleet scuttled at Scapa Flow. A spokeswoman for Pentland Coastguard said hope had not been abandoned of finding him alive.Reuse content
