Following the previous nights search for a missing 17 year old male snorkeler, the ALB refuelled, conducted a crew change and set back out to resume the search.

Church Ope cove was re searched on passage through to the search start position. Over the following 6 hours an extensive search was undertook. This started with a search pattern covering the west side of Portland, then a search in the south west area, subsequently a search of the eastern side.

With nothing found, the ALB was stood down and returned to station to refuel and be made ready for the next service.
