Slippers found on the shore

Boats launched : Atlantic 85 and D-Class

Date : Sunday 25 March

Launched at : 09:10

Returned at : 10:10

Weather : Cold early morning with a F3 N wind.

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.
