SEARCH – Botallack (16/05/2020)

On a very hot summers day, the team were called out by Devon & Cornwall Police to join the search for a female missing from the Botallack area, near St Just. Continuing to follow our strict guidelines on managing the COVID-19 risk, 17 team members searched field margins, whilst Lands End Coastguard Search & Rescue Team and St Ives Coastguard Rescue Team searched the coastal strip, Sennen Cove Lifeboat Station scoured the shoreline and the NPAS helicopter searched open areas.

As the last of our foot teams were starting their search areas, further intelligence came in, a possible sighting was followed up and the missing female was located safe and well outside of our core search areas. Team members then stood down and returned to weekend BBQs with their families, but not before the very kind staff at National Trust Tin Coast NT offered free ice creams to everyone at the RV.
