Search continues for fishing vessel with three people on board

SIX RNLI lifeboats have launched this morning (29 January) to continue the search for a missing fishing vessel with three people on board off the North Wales coast.

The search is coordinated by HM Coastguard.

The alarm was first raised yesterday morning for the missing vessel. Yesterday, seven RNLI lifeboats joined the multi-agency search, with some lifeboat out for nearly 12 hours at sea. Llandudno, Rhyl, Conwy, Beaumaris and Hoylake RNLI volunteers joined volunteer Coastguard teams and other emergency services in the search which lasted until 10 pm last night.

Volunteer lifeboat crews from Llandudno, Rhyl, Hoylake and Conwy have launched this morning to help search for the missing fishing vessel and its crew. Both Shannon class all-weather lifeboats and inshore lifeboats from Rhyl and Llandudno were requested to launch by HM Coastguard shortly after 8 am this morning.

Hoylake RNLI volunteers launched their Shannon class all-weather lifeboat shortly after 8:50 am and Conwy volunteer crew launched the inshore lifeboat at 9:07 am.
