Tenby lifeboats launch to resume search for missing person for third day in row
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
Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
