Tenby lifeboats launch to resume search for missing person for third day in row

Lifeboats News Release

Both of Tenby’s RNLI lifeboats were requested to launch at 1.50pm on Tuesday 3rd June after a request from Dyfed Powys Police for the third day in a row, to resume the search for a missing person.

The inshore lifeboat searched the inaccessible coves, beaches and caves from South Beach as far as Lydstep Beach and then the North side of Caldey Island, with the all-weather lifeboat searching up as far as Telpyn Point and back towards Tenby, while Police and Coastguard Teams searched ashore and the Police Helicopter searched from above.

With the search area exhausted once again and with nothing found, both lifeboats were stood down and returned to station, arriving at 3.10pm
