ILB launches to search for missing child.

Tenby’s inshore lifeboat was launched at 2.02pm on Saturday 11th July at the request of Milford Haven Coastguard following a report that a 9yr old child had gone missing on Tenby’s Castle beach during an incoming tide.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and the volunteer crew began a search from Castle beach towards South beach, whilst the RNLI Lifeguards and Coastguard teams searched the shore and Castle Hill.

The crew soon spotted a child on the steps below the Atlantic Hotel and went in to investigate. It turned out to be the missing child. The lifeboat crew stayed with the child and reassured him until the Coastguard team arrived to reunite him with his family.

The lifeboat stood down and returned to station.
