Lifeboats News Release

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat launched at 1.25pm today (1 September) after a youth who was walking the coast path from Saundersfoot failed to arrive in Tenby on time.

The lifeboat immediately started a shoreline search from 1st point to Swallowtree, also keeping an eye on the coast path for any signs of the missing person. Once at Swallowtree, with no sign of the casualty, the volunteer crew reversed their search and headed back towards Tenby.

As the lifeboat was approaching Tenby, Dyfed Powys Police confirmed that the walker had been found safe and well. The lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 2.10pm​
