SEARCH – Newquay (28/07/23)

Last Friday, the team were tasked by Devon & Cornwall Police at 09:00 to assist with the search for a missing person in the Newquay area.

East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team, Newquay coastguard search & rescue team, HM Coastguard Padstow, St Agnes Coastguard Search & Rescue Team, RNLI Lifeguards Newquay and both Newquay RNLI Lifeboats were also involved.

After an extensive search of the surrounding area by the numerous organisations, the casualty was located.

St Agnes Coastguard reported, ‘Following treatment from clinical staff the casualty was taken to hospital by friends.’

We were then stood down at 12:29. A great multi-agency coordination and response.


All of our team members are volunteers. We’re available 24/7, 365 days of the year to assist the emergency services to search for missing, vulnerable and injured people across West Cornwall.

We rely on public donations to operate.
