A 5 year old child went missing on West Wittering beach and so both lifeboats were launched to search the area. Some crew went ashore to search, whilst the boats started a sea search close in to the beach. Three more children were reported missing whilst the crews were still searching for the 5 year old. After some time all the missing children were accounted for and so the lifeboats were stood down, returned to the station, and were made ready for further service.
