Weymouth RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched at 3.15pm on Monday 8th January to assist in the search for a 16 old young man reported missing on Portland. The lifeboat was tasked with carrying out a shoreline search from Grove Point around the entire coastline of Portland to Chesil Cove and back again.
The search was called off when the lifeboat had completed the search back to Balaclava Bay and as darkness fell.
The lifeboat returned to station at 5.30pm.
