A funeral for drowned teenager Jordan James Marshall will be held tomorrow.

The "loveable" 17-year-old was caught in a rip on Christmas Day while swimming with his girlfriend, and is believed to have quickly disappeared beneath the water.

His body was found on Sunday night, just north of where he disappeared.

A woman, who did not want to be named, said Jordan had recently joined a youth group.

"Everyone who had anything to do with him found him to be very loveable, and he was kind, and he was full of joy."

A service for Jordan will be held at 10am in the Forrest Lawn Chapel, Guyton St, and it will be followed by interment in the Aramoho cemetery.
