Tenby inshore lifeboat in search for missing 3 year old

Lifeboats News Release

Tenby's inshore lifeboat launched for the second time in the day on Sunday 18th July, this time at 2.50pm, after the Coastguard received a call stating that a 3 year old child was missing on South beach.

The lifeboat made the short trip around to Castle beach and began their search up towards Giltar, while RNLI lifeguards and Coastguards searched ashore.

Luckily, news soon came through that the child had been found safe and well ashore, so the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 3.15pm.
