INSHORE LIFEBOAT LAUNCHED TO SEARCH FOR MISSING PERSON.

At 17:33hr on Sunday 14 June 2020, Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat was requested to launch by UK Coastguard, to assist the Police and Local Coastguard Units from Seahouses, Holy Island and Howick, to search for a missing male teenager. The lifeboat was tasked to conduct a shoreline search from Seahouses to Bamburgh, while Police and Coastguards searched shore and dunes.

Within a short time of commencing the search, all units were stood down as the missing person had been located safe and well by the police, and Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat was released and returned to station. Visibility at the time was poor due to sea fog, making the search difficult.
