Search for Missing Person

The lifeboat was asked to do a shoreline search for a 20yr old missing person.

 

Once on scene the lifeboat carried out a search between south beach and Clarach. A helicopter was requested to assist, and so were Borth Lifeboat.  

 

Whilst searching with the new Forward Looking Infra Red (FLIR) camera, which had recently been donated by Aberystwyth Round Table, the crew spotted a heat source on the beach, and informed the other search teams.

When the helicopter arrived on scene they were able to winch down their paramedic to the location who assisted in carrying the casualty to the waiting ambulance.

The lifeboat was then stood down.

Sadly the crew sadly found out that the casualty Adam Dewulf-Peters, a second-year international politics student had sadly passed away. More details can be seen here.

The crews thoughts are with Adams family at this difficult time.
