Mon, 14 Apr 2014

Air, sea and land teams were deployed yesterday after a fishing vessel was reported missing.

An RAF search and rescue helicopter, Douglas Coastguard and Douglas and Ramsey lifeboats were dispatched just before 2pm.

The boat, with two people onboard, had been reported overdue returning to Douglas after leaving the harbour earlier in the day.

The vessel was eventually located after making its own way to Laxey Harbour.
