A 19-year-old Dane on a school trip to Florence has gone missing in Italy, according to the Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera.
The male teenager apparently went missing on Tuesday night after falling – or jumping – from the Ponte Amerigo Vespucci Bridge into the river Arno following a night out with school mates in a nearby disco.
Local police, emergency responders and helicopters are still searching for the teen, whose disappearance has been confirmed by the Foreign Ministry.
