2013 Incident #2 24.1.13 1236UTC #0189

The whole coastguard team was asked by Dorset Police to help with the search for a 41-year-old male whose car had been found in Lyme Regis. The man had earlier been reported missing by Wiltshire police who were concerned for his welfare. Following a detailed briefing, the Coastguard organised four teams to carry out a detailed search of the immediate areas to the west of Lyme Regis, including Ware Cliffs, Ware Lane and the Undercliff. The Coastguard also asked for the RNLI inshore lifeboat to carry out a shoreline search between Golden Cap & Charton Bay. The Coastguard helicopter also carried out a search of all the area to the west of Lyme Regis using its high powered cameras and its FLIR, “forward looking infra-red” camera. The coastguard rope rescue team together with the RNLI then carried a detailed search of the Cobb high wall near the ‘Pool’ following reports of a possible sighting.
