Volunteers at Pwllheli RNLI were tasked at 9:36am by HM Coastguard at Holyhead to conduct a search of the area after reports of a missing person.

Pwllheli’s D Class ‘Robert J Wright’ launched first with a emphasis on conducting a shore line search working from Gimblet rock and along the shore. As the Mersey Class ‘Lilly & Vincent Anthony’ proceeded out of the boathouse and to the shoreline to launch, the search was called off by HM Coastguard as the individual had been found safe and well.

Clifford Thomas, Lifeboat Operation Manager at Pwllheli RNLI mentioned that ‘It was welcome news that the individual was found safe and well. Our volunteers are ready to respond 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 365 days of the year’

Both boats were ready for service once again at 11:00am
