Both Boats Launched for Missing Person Search 19/5/19


Dunbar’s all-weather (ALB) and inshore (ILB) lifeboats were launched last night (Sunday) to assist in the search for a missing person.

UK Coastguard paged for the crews to join shoreline coastguard teams from Dunbar, North Berwick and Eyemouth at around 9.35pm. Crews on both boats conducted a search from Belhaven to Torness, deploying illuminating flares. During the search, the missing person made themselves known to police and all assets were stood down at 11.20pm.

Both boats were refuelled and ready for service by 11.45pm.
