The first launch of the New Year for Newquay’s lifeboats was to search for a missing woman.
Newquay’s inshore lifeboats launched at 13:40 hrs on Tuesday 4th January 2010 to search for a missing female. The lady had been reported missing by concerned friends who were unsure of her whereabouts.
Falmouth Coastguard received a 999 call reporting the local lady missing. They were concerned that she may have got into difficulties along the coast line.
Tasked to search from Pentire headland to Porth Island, the lifeboats launched with volunteers Joe Emmett and Christian Brown at the helms. The volunteer lifeboat crew along with the Newquay Cliff rescue team carried out an extensive search before being stood down at 14:30 hrs. The lady had been found safe and well at home.
