Seahouses inshore lifeboat called to search for missing person

Lifeboats News Release

At 5:33pm on Sunday 14 June 2020, Seahouses inshore lifeboat was tasked to conduct a shoreline search from Seahouses to Bamburgh, while Police and Coastguards searched shore and dunes.

Within a short time of commencing the search, all units were stood down as the missing person had been located safe and well by the police, and Seahouses inshore lifeboat was released and returned to station.

Visibility at the time was poor due to sea fog, making the search difficult.
