Weymouth RNLI Inshore Lifeboat was launched at 2pm on Tuesday 9th January on a request from Solent Coastguard to continue the search for a missing teenager from Portland. With wind and sea conditions better than yesterday, the Coastguard wanted a further shoreline search to be carried out from Portland Bill to Chesil Cove to double check the search area.
The Inshore lifeboat was used for this second search due to its ability to get closer into the cliffs than the All-Weather lifeboat that was used for yesterdays search. The search failed to find any sign of the missing person and the lifeboat was released and returned back to station at 4pm
