2.5 hr search for missing person
A local care home reported that one of their guests had gone missing earlier in the day, and as the missing person was thought to be at risk it was decided to request the launch of the Teignmouth RNLI lifeboat 'The Two Annes' to assist the search.

The three crew volunteers Charlie Woolnough, Richard Boss and Adam Truhol searched the coast line from Bundle Head to Spray Point and then extended the search to the coastline at Dawlish Warren. With nothing untoward found by any of the coast and sea rescue units, the search was called off at 17:15.

At around 19:00hrs the missing person was reported as being found 'alive and well' in Dawlish.
