Missing man results in coastline search by Fishguard RNLI
Fishguard RNLI's all-weather lifeboat launched on Saturday 6 October to conduct a coastline search between Strumble Head and Dinas Head after a young man was reported missing since Thursday evening 4 October.
The following morning, Sunday 7 October, the inshore lifeboat with three crew launched at 9.20am after being tasked to recover clothing reported as being seen on the coastline rocks at Pen Anglas and believed to belong to the person who had been reported as missing but who had been found alive the previous evening. After a thorough search of the area in much calmer conditions the lifeboat returned to base at 9.40am after nothing was found.
