Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboat-assists-with-missing-person-search-in-rough-seas

Byline: At 9.10am on Saturday the 21st of December, volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station were tasked to assist in a search for a missing person in rough seas.
Page Content: ​​The station’s Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan, was quickly launched from Criccieth and commenced a near-shore search in an operation involving; both Pwllheli lifeboats, local HM Coastguard teams and RAF Valley’s search-and-rescue helicopter.  The search was in response to reports of a person missing from Pwllheli since late Friday evening.  Criccieth’s lifeboat followed the coastline from Criccieth to Penychain point in rough and demanding conditions. 


 The lifeboat performed four sweeps of the coastline, before being stood down by HM Coastguard some two-and-a-half hours later. ​
