Scarborough RNLI involved in multi-agency search
Scarborough RNLI’s inshore lifeboat launched on Tuesday 19 February to help the coastguards and police with a search for a missing person.
On a flat calm sea, the lifeboat launched at 4.44pm and conducted a shoreline search between the end of the east pier and Jacksons Bay, which is just north of Scalby Mills.
The lifeboat was stood down when the missing person was found elsewhere.
