 The lifeboat was launched at 1705 hours and made passage towards Loch Goil.  However, before reaching the loch it was asked to return to station as the situation had been resolved.  While the lifeboat was on passage, a fishing boat in the loch reported that the lights appeared to be coming from the shore close to Carrick Castle.  This report was investigated and confirmed by Rescue Helicopter 177 who advised that there were two persons walking a dog on the shore who had got lost.  They were picked up by the helicopter and taken to safety.  The lifeboat returned to station and reported ready for service again at 1806 hours.
