Sunday 7th September 2014

At 21.17 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard the Sheringham Lifeboat was launched to assist in the search for a possible missing person. The Lifeboat was working as part of a coordinated search with other emergency services.

The Lifeboat crew were tasked to proceed to Weybourne and then return doing a thorough search of the inshore waters and foreshore back in an easterly direction as far as West Runton.

The Lifeboat completed an inshore water search from Weybourne through to beyond East Runton and then returned to Sheringham also doing a further inshore waters search before being stood down at 23.00 hrs.

The missing person was thankfully found safe and well, inland and about 5 miles from Sheringham.

Good service professionally undertaken.
