NMOC requested the launch of the ALB at first light, to assist in the search of a missing person off Freshwater beach. Lyme Regis and Exmouth lifeboats had been in attendance the previous day. ALB was launched, however, stood down approximately 3nm NW of Portland Bill when sadly, a body matching the description of the missing person was found ashore by the CRT. The ALB returned to station where it was made ready for service again.
