Slippers found on the shore

Early on Sunday 25 March, the UK Coastguard, following a call from Hampshire Police, asked us to join the search for a 41 year old lady who was in a distressed state and last seen at 05:00.  Her slippers had been found on the shore line at Cockle Rythe. Both Lifeboats were launched and due to the ebb tide the D-Class was asked to search the creeks and inlets as long as the tide allowed. The Atlantic 85 searched the more major channels and coastguard search teams arrived to start a shore line search. After an hour the Police reported that the person had been found safe at home, so both lifeboats were released and returned to station.
