ON Friday night (June 15), Burry Port RNLI’s training session was interrupted with a request to search for a missing 13 year old, who was last seen at the Llanmadoc Camp Site, North Gower.
Both boats were despatched from their training schedule at 8:20pm and tasked to search the shoreline around Broughton.
Boats were crewed by Paul Mitchell, Jared Phillips, Doug Humphreys and Josh Morris on the D class ILB and Gary Morgan, Catrin Burt and John Massocchi on the Atlantic 75.
Rhossili and Loughour UK Coast Guard teams were also tasked to the search area.
At 8:40pm, the message came through that the casualty had been found safe and well.
Both boats continued with their training plans, a good ending to the incident.
