Tenby inshore lifeboat in search for missing boy

Lifeboats News Release

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch just before 4pm on 26 August after an 11 year old boy was reported missing in the vicinity of Tenby’s South Beach.

The Georgina Taylor was on the water within minutes of the pagers going off and immediately began a shoreline search from St Catherine’s Island towards Giltar, whilst RNLI Lifeguards, Coastguard units and Tenby Police searched the beach and streets above.

 

Fortunately, a call came through from the Police, confirming that the boy was now safe and well, having returned home.

The lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 4.30pm.
