The volunteer crew of RNLI Kessock were paged to launch the Lifeboat on Thursday morning (27 December) at 8.12am to search of the Inner Beauly Firth following reports of a missing person from Beauly.
Aberdeen Coastguard Co-ordination Centre also requested the help of RNLI Kessock’s swift water trained volunteers to assist Inverness Coastguard in a shoreline search of the Beauly river.
In the emerging daylight and good weather conditions The Moray Dolphin made its way east from the Lifeboat station to the mouth of the river Beauly while other volunteers went by road to a meeting point prior to the search commencing.
However, whilst both teams were en route to the incident the missing person was found to be safe and well and both crews were stood down from the shout.
After 12 weeks without any shouts this would be the first of 3 shouts in as many days over the festive holiday for the volunteers of RNLI Kessock
